Hey guys,

This is my first status report for GSoC 2016.

I’ve attended the tor browser meeting on IRC and done some organizational work there.
We plan to now track Orfox specific tickets on trac [0] using the keyword “tbb-mobile”.
We still have bugs on the TGP bug tracker [1] but plan to move slowly from there to trac.
Currently, on the tor projects trac, we have mobile fingerprinting tickets.

I’ve also had success in rebasing from orfox-tor-browser-38.5.0esr-5.5-2 to orfox-tor-browser-38.8.0esr-5.5-1 [2].
Between the time of writing the GSoC proposal and the start of the program, we rebased from orfox-tb_GECKO380esr_2015050513_RELBRANCH to orfox-tor-browser-38.5.0esr-5.5-2.
And now we’ve successfully moved to 38.8.0.
Here’s a temporary build if someone wants to check it out [3]. But the official one should be on FDroid pretty soon.

Next up, ESR 45. Rebasing to 45 might be harder, but I will see how it goes.
After which I plan on starting with the code audit.

Thats it for now, just regular maintenance stuff, nothing fancy to report!

Hope you guys have a nice weekend.
