I think writing a "Funding All Things Mobile Tor" SoI would likely be
funded by DRL and/or OTF. We would need to go very big in the vision of
supporting both Android and iOS as first tier platforms, including
support for community projects like OnionShare and Ricochet. All of the
core work on little t-tor, infrastructure, metrics, etc would be
supported by this funding, but it is just that instead of starting with
those things as end results or outputs, they become highly funded
critical dependencies.

If Tor Project as an organization isn't prepared to propose such a thing
directly, then I am happy to, either as Guardian Project or through a
partner like Internews who is currently funding our work on pluggable
transports and mobile browsers.

All the best,
