Hi everyone!
This is my status report for January 2022.

I took back from the patchset reordering and Tor Browser Bundle test.
I got Richard's feedback, thanks to which we improved the result a lot.
Now we can build Tor Browser (almost) at every commit of our patchset. 
Builds at two commits (around the integration of torbutton) produce a 
non-working browser, but this was an acceptable trade-off for us.
Please, have a look at the original issue (tor-browser#40562 
and at the merge requests (tor-browser!242 
and tor-browser!250 
for more details.

For tests, I updated the ones that were not working anymore 
and added some issues to what we would like to fix/implement.

Then, I had some new tasks.
One was rebasing geckoview to version 96 (tor-browser#40769 
and !243 
and Android components to 96.0.13. The latter were not merged; 
aguestuser rebased them to 96.0.15, instead.
Anyway, this took me quite some time, but I learned a lot about our 
build system.
Also, it made me find a problem with our configuration flags for Firefox 
that prevented geckoview from being compiled successfully and fixed them 
in tor-browser!251 
Eventually, this patch was also needed for Firefox 91.6.

Another big task was updating Tor settings in the about:preferences 
I am close to a conclusion with it.

Finally, another pair of tasks were updating obfs4proxy 
and some localization strings (tor-browser!247 

If I have not forgotten anything, that is all for this month 🙂.
