Hiro: (last updated before 2020-01-09)
    Started restoring Twitter Responder.
        When retrieving tweets I need to check for new tweets only otherwise Gettor will end up responding to old back log and already answered messages. <-- is this #27330 ?
    Next Week:
      - Work on gettor specs <-- Is this #3781?
      - More with review of strings and website content and translation

  This week (2020-02-13):
        * Merged #32860 (make obfs4 Docker image smaller).
        * Still more work on Python 3 port. Should be almost done now. Test-deployment on polyanthum will probably highlight more issues though.
        * Created OONI pull request to add our latest default bridge to their scan targets.
        * Wrote BridgeDB "what's new?" blog post with Steph's help: https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-bridgedb-093
        * Attended Sponsor 30 sync meeting.
        * Filed #33299 (retire obfs3, scramblesuit, and fte from BridgeDB) and wrote a patch.
        * Closing #33007 now that our bridge campaign retrospective is done.
  Next week:
        * Hopefully finish Python 3 port
        * Write a summary of our current BridgeDB distribution mechanisms and brainstorm new ones
  Help with:
        * #33299
