Notes for June 28 2018 meeting:

1) Should we collect and then maintain a list of who else in the world
has Tor related funding? That way we can coordinate better at helping
amplify their impact, and also remember to invite them to dev meetings,
etc. [Answer: yes good idea in theory, but we'd need a responsible
person to keep track of the list. We'll think on it.]

1) Our first Tor Browser alpha based on Firefox 60 ESR is out. The
process was painful but the result seems to stick. \o/
2) Got back to OTF regarding our bug bounty program

1) Made some progress on coming up with a scheme for OONI measurement
IDs. See:
2) Investigating blocking of Tor in venezuela

1) We've been doing screenings for fundraising director candidates.
2) Lots of travel approvals for the Mexico City meeting. We need to come
up with a more efficient way to do this! Contracts with the hotel have
(finally!) been signed.
3) Worked on, and working on, more job descriptions and reading resumes.

getting caught up on a bunch of stuff.

7) connected with access now and have been trying to get info about

1) Nothing for the group, though curious how the patch count trend is
going with Tor Browser, and other aspects of the Mozilla relationship.

trac ticket for previous years, let me find it]
