The source is not publicly available, yet. Some of the main system
components are still being reworked to support more capabilities and
better overall performance.  We do, however, plan to make the source
available in the medium-term.

At this point, we would love feedback from the Tor development
community on our approach and techniques. While Tor is not the only
application for FTE, we certainly consider it a key one. We'll happily
consider your feedback as we move forward.
