Hello Tor, hello world!

Below you'll find the highlights of Tor metrics team work done in April

On behalf of the Tor metrics team,

Added French, Romanian, and Swedish translations to the ExoneraTor
website [1], in addition to existing languages English and German, and
made all languages available via links in the footer rather than relying
on the user to configure their browser for any given language.  All new
languages have been translated by the Transifex community [2] and
reviewed by Tor people.

Replaced Tor performance measurements gathered by Torperf (torperf,
moria, siv) with measurements performed by OnionPerf (op-hk, op-nl,
op-us) on CollecTor [3] and Metrics [4].

Published Tor Technical Report 2017-04-001 [5] titled "Privacy analysis
of Tor's in-memory statistics" that "analyzes which possibly sensitive,
potentially personally identifying data is stored in memory of Tor
relays and bridges or reported to the directory authorities and makes
suggestions to reduce the collection and temporary storage of such data."


Made a couple more usability and robustness enhancements to Atlas [6],
including adding a red/green indicator to easily distinguish currently
running relays [7], adjusting the size of a kilobyte to tor's [8],
reducing redundant custom CSS and external resources [9, 10], and
removing confusingly empty fields when no data is available [11].

and set up a new CollecTor mirror on a Tor host kindly provided by SUNET
