Hi people.

This is my sixth and last report for the 'Revamp GetTor' GSoC project. I'll
try to summarize what I've done in the last two weeks. If you have any
comments, please tell me!


[*] Solved pending issues on the XMPP module, and tested it on a couple
more providers.
[*] Created a simple guide for testing both SMTP and XMPP module.
[*] Opened tickets for documenting and discussing what's been done during
[*] Forked and modified the current code* of BridgeDB Twitter distributor
to create a basic Twitter module. I haven't finished this, since there are
some issues** I'd like to discuss before doing further development.
[*] Started to work on blacklisting of users (not finished).

There are still some days left until the hard deadline for GSoC, so I'll
try to finish the last point during the weekend. I haven't been able to
test the SMTP module on a real environment, I'll try to do that in the
weekend too.

I guess I'll write another e-mail to this list once GSoC is over, to talk
about the entire process and development of the project. One of the things
I can tell you is that so far I've written ~1500 lines (I know, quantity
doesn't mean quality). I have already communicated to my mentors that I
want to keep working on GetTor after GSoC, and given that I've re-written
most of the code, I'll be happy to maintain it, too.

*: at least what is public on Github.
**: the issues are related to Twitter API terms and privacy. I sent an
e-mail to this list [0] for discussion. Feel free to comment.

As always, you can view the code on [1]. Have a nice weekend!
