Sorry for putting it in a confusing way. The reason was that there is
a strong chance that after August I'll be able to access the
Panopticlick data (and probably the code), as an EFF
volunteer/contractor. I thought it might be a better idea to work
after that, assuming Peter may give some valuable advices on the
process too. If code gets published before August, I can start to work

Also what is missing in the timeplan is my intention to implement
~everything except the backend a part of the QA process, and then
reuse the code in the ultimate website (your suggestion). In addition
to the new tests, I'll be working on the machine readable output,
entropy calculation and submitting test machine fingerprints to a
central database as a part of (2).

Let me know if that makes sense or I can revise the timeplan (e.g.
leave (3) to the end).
