Here's Community Team report for September 2019.


In the first week of September, Community Team hosted DoscHackathon, our first
documentation hackathon

During the week, we had 70 registrations, 8 contributors, and over 70 pull
requests to Support Portal, Tor Browser Manual, Tor Project main website and
other web repositories.  

It was a lot of work, and we still have some open issues tagged as
DocsHackathon. The participants received different Tor prizes according to
their contribution. 

Many thanks to all who collaborated in some way: reviewing the pull requests,
opening new issues, writing new content, fixing css, doing screenshots and many
other things! <3

We also worked in the content migration from old FAQ to Support Portal -

These are the new sections on Support Portal:
 - About Tor: <https://support.torproject.org/about/>
 - Get in touch: <https://support.torproject.org/get-in-touch/>
 - Debian repository instructions: <https://support.torproject.org/apt/>

And more content migrated to:
 - Relay operators: <https://support.torproject.org/operators/>
 - Tor Browser: <https://support.torproject.org/tbb/>

Sponsor9 work

Since July, Community Team has been working on Sponsor9 phase 3, which consist
of our partners from the Global South to organize Tor trainings with the
mentorship and online help from Community and UX teams. In September, we
reached out more than 15 partners from different countries inviting them to join
us this new phase. 

As this partnership process is new to the Community team, we're slowly
bringing the partners on board.
