2) Published blog post on OONI's recent participation at conferences in
Africa, India, and Europe:
3) Made some progress on getting yubikey based signing of probe
orchestration requests: https://github.com/TheTorProject/proteus/pull/42
4) We are in the process of consolidating all OONI related repositories
into github.com/ooni/. This should leave github.com/TheTorProject more
free from OONI related projects. We are going to keep in TheTorProject
all the OONI repos that are to be archived (i.e. that are deprecated)
5) Coordinating with Jon the shipment of OONI T-Shirts to Seattle

1) Misc.

1) New release candidate coming out some time this weekend-ish?
2) Talking with crypto folks about improved crypto for tor relays,
following up from Rome.

1) On the thread with Google about ReCaptcha: To be honest, I think that
reaching out to them like this is a waste of time. I should have
objected to the idea earlier. Public pressure about exactly how bad this
situation is will be the only thing that will move the needle in terms
of them devoting resources to the problem. For pete's sake.. This is a
company that is basically the primary/only gateway to much of the
Internet, and it has decided that certain IP addresses *do not deserve
access to that Internet*. Full stop. This is not a problem that gets
solved by having our devs talk to their devs to "nerd harder". This
should be a PR bloodbath..  We should have made it one months ago.
