Hi all, hope you've enjoyed the holidays (and for a few of you CCC)! This
December I finally swapped back to focusing on arm in earnest. Good news is
that the codebase is rapidly improving [1], the focus for this month being...

  * Finished overhauling the starter module.
  * Expanded test coverage as more of arm gets rewritten.
  * Integrated pyflakes and pep8 with our tests.
  * Moved user facing strings to the internal configuration. I did this to
    improve our code, but it could also allow us to add internationalization
    support to arm in the future if folks want it. [2]

Bad news is unfortunately that none of these improvements are user facing, and
even by the rosiest estimates arm's next release is still many months off.

This December I also finished with my efforts to revise our internal lists.
None of the more substantial changes got much support, but this still resulted
in some worthwhile improvements...

  * A wiki with our lists, maintainers, and a brief summary of each...


  * We now have a public, documented policy for adding folks to our internal

  * The tor-assistants list is now a proper subset of tor-internal.

  * Identified some unused lists we can drop. [3]

Cheers! -Damian
