- Started a measurement for Sponsor 4 with a Tor compiled without LZMA
and Zstandard support.

with the release for 0.3.0.x and 0.3.1.x.
- Testing of releases on OS X, FreeBSD, and Linux.
- Switched from text file notes for the week to Harvest. Seems
good so far.
- Did everything needed before the end of the fiscial year (I
hope! Items are "pending approval").
- Help out with 0.3.1 issues:
- Go over the Sponsor 4 measurement issues and figure out: which is
solved by the current knowledge and data we have, which can be solved
easily with some modifications, and figure out if there is any of them
that requires any modifications to Tor that we don't currently have.
- Look into the mobile proposal email from Isa.

understand it much
- I will try to continue doing fuzzing
