Notes for September 7 2017 meeting:

0) Was out most of last week; back now.
1) Released; trying to time the stabilization for that series.
2) Behind on implementation and triage for 0.3.2.x; not too far, though,
I think. Mostly my fault?

1) trying to dig out of post-vacation backlog

back-and-forth on their proposal; looks like they'll get started next week

tomorrow to discuss Internet of Things and browsers

1) Final invoice for Sponsor R will be issued today
2) Financial statement and compliance audits are continuing
3) Several new grants and contracts awarded this summer
4) Tentatively assigned sponsor codes to new grants/contracts and we're
up to Sponsor 15

1) Coming back to consensus reality after eschaton^Wvacation. (You can
only handle so much of the undifferentiated love for all things, before
it gets boring and you really wish there was a Thunderdome nearby...)
2) Going to be buried in email while I try to dig out from a couple
weeks of backlog. (I ignored *all* of it :).
3) Going to Shari's for the meeting with Mozilla and Amazon today.

1) Working f2f with Linda and Steph (and Roger) on the website redesign
project - mostly focus on content mapping and organization of

3) reports for invoices are out for Brad - working on sponsor4 August report
4) starting to prep sponsor8 M&E stuff

1) Gave a remote presentation at a workshop held by CAIDA called IMAPS
(https://www.caida.org/workshops/imaps/1709/), they are doing very
interesting stuff

1) We released Tor Browser 7.0.5
2) Collected all the meeting ideas that are Tor Browser related and for
the team meeting day. nickm: We'll probably have a meeting with Mozilla
about what we need to do to get tor integrated into Firefox. It would be
good if one from the network team could attend to help from the
little-t-tor side
3) I started to talk to Jon about special  bug bounty swag

of my team reporting timesheets via Harvest/to accounting?) <- Brad: Sue
