What Philipp did:
    * Attended RACE brainstorming meeting about obfs5
        * Updated description of https://bugs.torproject.org/30716 with feature ideas
        * We decided to first study the "long tail" of network traces because it will inform our obfs5 design

    * Lots of reading to get up to speed on PT spec and obfs4 issues
    * Reached out to PT spec implementers to see what suggestions they had
        * Only one person responded :(
What Philipp will do:
    * Understand PT spec issues on Android (sysrqb and nathan know the details)

        * Maybe also reach out to a new contact at a network provider
