[tor-dev] Tor Censorship Detector: Can I help?

I'd like to help improve the Tor Censorship Detector. I've read some
background material and think I understand the basics of George Danezis'
detection algorithm [1, 2].

Is anyone still working on this? Two tickets from a year ago talk about
experimenting with various detection algorithms and turning one of them
into a standalone utility [3, 4]. Has anything happened since then?

My background: I'm a graduate student at Georgia Tech studying network
censorship circumvention and measurement. Although I've met Tor
developers on various occasions, I haven't directly contributed to the
project; I'd like to change that.
