Here are the top 5 things I did in July:
- Held two (!) monthly sponsor F IRC meetings in a single month, one on
July 3 for June progress and one on July 31 for July progress. Planning
to hold another one in about a month from now.
- Cleaned up the Onionoo codebase enough to have execution times with
little variance again. Hardware is highly I/O bound, and when backups
run for a few hours during the night, it happened that hourly Onionoo
- Simulated Steven's utp branch using Shadow, with help by Steven and
Rob. This is for #9166. Results are, unfortunately, not very
promising. Needs more work in August.
- Added two new paramters to Onionoo: "contact" allows to search relays
by contact line, and "fields" limits responses to a subset of fields.
- Attended the Tor dev meeting in Garching near Munich, discussed
important stuff, met a lot of friends, and introduced a few new people
This also means I did everything I wanted to do in July:
> - Make plans for sponsor F year 3 phase 2 deliverables together with
> Roger and developers. Plans include deliverable interpretations that
> developers consider realistic and that Roger considers sufficient.
> Also, make internal milestones to track progress on deliverables and to
> be able to respond to problems.
Done, either by writing down expected outcomes or agreeing on next steps.
> - Discuss requirements of a project management system together with Tom,
> Nick, and others.
> - Build Steven's utp branch and simulate it in Shadow, possibly with
> help of Nick and/or Rob.
> - Attend the dev meeting in Munich.
> - Continue tweaking Onionoo to reduce load on yatei.
The plan for August is to make progress on these tasks:
- Run more Shadow simulations of Steven's utp branch or other branches
produced by sponsor F deliverables.
- Coordinate more of sponsor F year 3.
- Resume working on the Twisted-based Torperf that I started earlier
- Improve #7359 so that it can be merged into master.
- Get metrics-lib and Onionoo added to Tor's Jenkins, and maybe even
make Debian packages for them.
