Updating KIST tickets as we speak.
David: KIST will be needs_review by the end of the day
Last week (2017-W31):
- helped review #23061 (crypto_rand_double()); floating point is HARD
- looked at #22636 log output on failure -- seems OK actually
due to the way automake's test rules extract failing/skipped detailed
logs into test-suite.log.
- dealing with myriad small annoyances of a new house
This week (2017-W32):
- copy brade's comments about Tor Launcher behavior from
#22232 to somewhere more useful like a wiki page
- think some more about #23061
- think some more about how Core Tor can help Tor Launcher
with bootstrap troubleshooting
- began writing up a specification for Ristretto (Decaf point
encoding for curve25519), this way we can agree that we're all doing
the same encoding, and then I can use it in Hyphae (#22776)
- revising patches for the new cmdline key expiration feature (#17639)
- some torspec patches
- laptop had hardware failures and needed to be repaired and
then reinstalled :(
- also starting building a desktop/build/work machine as well,
but that's not finished yet
- reviewing Chelsea's Rust protover patch
- more work on the moat backend server (#22871) and farfetchd (#15967)
- getting ready for my talk at rustconf next week
