Notes for October 19 2017 meeting:

1) Preparing Tor Browser 7.0.7 and 7.5a6 with the updated donation
campaign code
2) Working on getting the roadmap updated with all the team dependencies

0) What a great meeting!
1) Internews PT meeting on monday/tuesday seemed to go okay; I think
they're likely to adopt practices resulting in convergence on a stable
PT 2.x design.
2) Probably not here today; after 9 days of meetings, I need a break.
3) Network team did a draft roadmap. We included items that depend on,
or that will affect, other teams.

Bytes for All:
2) We are migrating our email from runbox to GSuite
3) Updated 4 tests lists:
4) We are going to publish tomorrow a blog post about the OONI team
5) Started experimenting with gatsby and contentful for revamping our
website: https://github.com/openobservatory/ooni-website/tree/gatsby,
found a bunch of bugs in gatsby, may not end up using it.
6) Created a repository containing licenses for OONI software:
https://github.com/openobservatory/legal. Does anybody know some good
friendly lawyers we could reach out to regarding the licensing of data?
7) Began adding support for the new OONI API to OONI Explorer:
8) Following discussion with metrics and TBB teams we started adding
support for extracting tor related metrics inside of ooni-pipeline:

and how it works. (retweet if you wish:
10) Making some progress on OONI Probe 3.0:
11) The deployment process of our website has levelled up. When a branch
is merged into master, travis will automatically build it and push it to
staging. Deploying it is then just a matter of running a simple script
(this could be improved)
