1) Published report on recent censorship findings in Egypt:

bridges.torproject.org, and ooni.torproject.org).

Gathering (we also ordered some OONI T-Shirts!)
4) Maria is in touch with the Campaign Director of Avaaz who is
interested in making Tor more available/accessible to people in Egypt
and elsewhere around the world. We have been providing them advice on
how to do so, but if you'd like to get in touch with them as well, let
us know and Maria will introduce you.

generation OONI measurements API backed by the new pipeline:

upcoming mobile app release

second half of next week.
2) Wrote blog post draft for metrics-lib 2.0.0 release with help by
Stephanie and Tommy.

1) I seem to have a ton of people's timesheets showing up in my harvest
account for approval (they were not in the approval list for me that
Brad sent, either). Is this supposed to be happening?  [brad: I'm
working to resolve some of the setup issues now]
2) Fixing netflow bugs/tickets.
3) Next week is the Mozilla all hands meeting. Anything I should bring
up there? (Erinn mentioned the new TBB positions. Anything else?)

2) Organizing NSF work with Roger and network team / get a subset of
Brad's ppl time allocation per sponsor spreadsheet to Nick
3) sponsor4 may report / invoices updates to brad
4) super late with this because of other things that took priority ->
trying to finish 2017/18 update / finish tor launcher feature brief
update based on june 2nd meeting  / but!!!! that doesn't mean things
aren't moving, Linda is doing wireframes, Isis is working on moat api.
5) Hiro has a new layout from ux team for the blog, which fixes bad user
experience tickets. I spoke with network team in Wilmington about gitlab
and got some feedback for hiro on how to move fwd with it.
6) Linda reviewed tor launcher wireframes - should be shared with the
team soon, very exciting! Next week Linda will be at MOSS all hands, so
hopefully she will get more feedback there. Reviewing mocks for website,
so we can pick up on that when Linda is back.
7) randomly helping the new peeps on different small tasks, reviewing
SOI for DRL and trying to get the onboarding wiki page done

1) Moving on with Sponsor4 work
2) Do we know by now who is doing the non-Tor Browser parts for the moat
bridge discovery thing? [isa: isis is working on it, I met with her in
Seattle on early June and she knows the TBB team needs it by end of july
or august if you will]

5) Taking things in, getting situated, strategizing comms plan. Feeling
out messaging with input from comms periphery
6) Looking over site mockups, will be writing copy

1) Harvest adoption going well so far from accounting standpoint. Sue
was able to complete the time allocations for May by 6/8, the earliest
turnaround since I was hired last Nov.

"approvers" per the list that I sent out last month.  --> I'll provide
