Hello Tor, hello world!

Below you'll find the highlights of Tor metrics team work done in
November 2018 as well as a few expected highlights for the current
month, December 2018.

On behalf of the Tor metrics team,

November 2018:

Evaluated a number of frameworks that could help to reduce code
maintenance costs. A number of features have been added to stem to
support this work. The results of the evaluation are to be published in
an upcoming tech report.

Split up metrics-web's legacy module into more maintainable parts [1].

Released Onionoo 7.0-1.19.1 [2] that updates to MaxMind's GeoLite2
format for the ASN database [3].

Prepared new graphs on relays by country for a possible metrics-team
blog post for Tor's end of year campaign.

Reviewed first bunch of applications for the third full-time member of
the metrics team [4].

December 2018:

Continue to evaluate frameworks for use in a CollecTor replacement and
implement a prototype replacement [5].

Deploy changes to the Total consensus weights across bandwidth
authorities graph [6] with another line for the consensus [7] and with
all lines showing only relays with the Running flag in their respective
consensus or vote [8].

 [7] https://bugs.torproject.org/28352
 [8] https://bugs.torproject.org/28137

Combine two bandwidth graphs by relay flag and switch to a better
visualization using stacked area charts [9].

 [9] https://bugs.torproject.org/28353

Tweak OnionPerf graphs by showing all measurements at once and therefore
removing the combined all-sources lines [10].

 [10] https://bugs.torproject.org/28603

Write blog post for Tor's end of year campaign.
