services work to otf and other grant proposals

1) lost most of tues to food poisoning. still not quite 100% yet

Need to get back into editing and sharing w a couple more folks
3) preparing for presentation on Tor to 50 high school girls as part of

who’ll be joining, and alison for helping with an activity
4) helped with OONI launch
5) AMA with Roger was accepted in the crypto village at Def Con - we are
waiting to hear our time slot.
6) lots going on through mid august: cs4cs session, hope, lfi workshop,
def con, website copy writing, plus routine comms

1) Fully integrated Relay Search into Tor Metrics rather than including
it as Git submodule.
2) Developed two new graphs based on existing OnionPerf data that show
circuit build times and circuit latencies.

1) Mexico City meeting planning, especially open days scheduling
 - I want each team to give at least one talk on the open days. I will
be reaching out about this soon!
2) HOPE organizing
 - btw, HOPE speakers get comped tickets. A few of us HOPE speakers
bought tickets. Do we know anyone who might want to buy our tickets from us?
3) trying to see where I can help with Sponsor9 next steps
4) currently in LFI week 5, working on our in-person meetup next month
5) working on updating docs for Tor Browser 8

1) Nothing for the group

1) Still keepin' on with the Network Team; not much is happening
2) Going to PETS at end of month
3) Other teams, including OONI and Mobile and etc: we need info on how
the tor in-process integration support is working for you, so we can fix
any problems and annoyances while we still have time and funding.
[Arturo: Yes we have this on our todo list for this month (we were
hoping to do it last month, but it fell through the cracks). Are we
still in time if we give some feedback by then? It would also be useful
to get pointers to some unittests or similar things that check if the
expectations of the API are met (if such exist).][GeKo: The best is to
ping sysrqb and/or igt0 for that. They have spent the most time on
mobile stuff.]

1) Published research report on internet censorship in Egypt with AFTE:
https://ooni.torproject.org/post/egypt-internet-censorship/ (received a
fair amount of press coverage in Egypt and Maria spoke about it in a
talk show on the Al Araby TV channel!)
2) Published research report on Ethiopia with Access Now:
3) Coordination with locals in Uganda to test the blocking of social
media platforms following the social media tax rollout
4) Working towards a beta release for OONI Probe 3.x:
