Hi Deepak, Utsarga, Tobias, and Yiwen!

The four of you recently expressed interest in the censorship analyser
project [1].  At this point, we only have a paper which discusses what we
want from the tool [2].  There is no official code repository but Tobias
recently started experimenting with some modules [3].

It would be great if you all could join forces and split the workload.  I
understand that some of you have some constraints from your respective
university.  As a result, could you please reply to this email (don't
forget to CC tor-dev) and sum up what you can/want to do and if you are
under any constraints such as a time-limited class project?  We can then
see if and how we can divide the project into several sub projects.

Regarding development and coordination: This mailing list is great for
high-latency, broad, conceptual, and public discussions.  For low-latency
questions, the #tor-dev channel on OFTC is better.  There's also #ooni for
OONI-specific questions (most of the developers are in Europe, so you might
have to wait for answers).  I am not sure how familiar you are with git but
it is certainly the preferred version control system in and around Tor.  So
this might be a good opportunity to learn how to use it :)
