Hi everyone!

I'm Mridul, a senior year undergraduate from IIIT-Delhi. I am really
thrilled to have been selected in GSoC 2016 for the Exitmap improvements
project! It's an amazing opportunity and I hope to contribute something
substantial to the Tor community.
My IRC handle is mtyamantau.

My primary and secondary mentor will be Dr. Philipp Winter (phw) and Damian
Johnson (atagar) respectively. I'll be primarily active on #tor-dev on
irc.oftc.net and on tor-dev at lists.torproject.org.

About project:
The project is mainly focused around Exitmap improvements, with the three
major aspects being implementing autonomous scanning, multiple user
interaction in Tor Browser and a system for implementing automated data
collection from multiple users[1]. My full proposal is linked below[2] for
more information on this. I

Project details:
Official start and end dates: 23rd May (Mon) to 29th August (Mon).

For now, I plan to start reading and getting myself familiarized with the
codebase before that. Also, I have still some uncertainty and questions in
certain sub-tasks, which I hope to resolve with the Tor community.

I will be sending bi-weekly project reports to tor-dev at lists.torproject.org.
They will mainly be on the progress that I have made that highlight the
work done in that duration.
