Announcing Tor Reports

For the past four years, I've been summarizing progress of Tor on the blog. See the tag progress report for the history of these reports. Based on community feedback, we're switching to a mailing list with archive of the raw status reports. Tor-reports is live. The goal is to provide the raw details rather than summarizing all of the progress and only being able to provide a quick summary per topic.

Each developer, advocate, and internal staff will be posting their reports to this list. The idea is to share more with the community and give people a chance to ask questions directly of the people doing the work. Enjoy the transparency.

hi all privacy fans. i know this is off topic but can someone recommend a privacy oriented VOIP software. Like an open-source version of skype. with end to end encryption or something. It doesn't have to be able to make calls to land line phones, just between users, like you do with yahoo,msn,skype.

does it exist??

Does this mean that you stop publishing reports (or summaries) on this blog?

This blog is easier to read for people that are not so "close" to Tor, they come by and read a report, then they are gone. Maybe they come back. With a mailing list (and archive) it's harder to reach people by accident.

"The idea is to share more with the community and give people a chance to ask questions directly of the people doing the work."

that is the purpose of a F0RUM, not another MAILING LIST used by the 1%.

and where is the TBB bump? FF-ESR is at 10.0.6 but there hasn't been any update yet for The Tor Browser Bundle, which has a Tor Browser version of 10.0.5.

Fixed in Firefox ESR 10.0.6
MFSA 2012-56 Code execution through javascript: URLs
MFSA 2012-55 feed: URLs with an innerURI inherit security context of page
MFSA 2012-54 Clickjacking of certificate warning page
MFSA 2012-53 Content Security Policy 1.0 implementation errors cause data leakage
MFSA 2012-52 JSDependentString::undepend string conversion results in memory corruption

What community feedback values raw feedback that are usually low level details in which only developers/expert users would have any interest?

I have come to value the summaries of progress as that does not require the work necessary to dig up what information is of interest.

For example, how many reports will I have to go through to find out any progress or none at all with regard to crypto-router progress? This recent decision makes it more difficult for some of us.

Seems like a good idea to share with the community, but the deluge of information may make it more difficult for those of use who want the top level summary in the status reports.

Perhaps you don't value the essence of being able to sum up what is necessary to attract investors in your project?

There is still a need for both varieties of reports in case you miss my point.

Tor Project needs to realize that people don't care. You are the current fan favorite in some parts of the world, but decreasingly so. Any of these new technologies can replace you in a heart-beat. Look at what is happening in China. China defeated Tor. Tor does not work for the common Chinaman. Soon this will be the case in other parts of the world. It is already true in most Fortune 500 companies.

If you don't make it easy to digest the drivel sent to tor-reports, less will care. Find or hire someone to summarize the reports for you. Debian does it. Fedora does it. Many of the successful open source projects do it. They do it for a reason. If you are unreachable to the common person, they will move on and never learn the glory of Tor. I'm not going to waste an hour finding the one tidbit of information I want to learn about a topic. 99% of the world will not waste their time either. Welcome to the 1%.

This decision smacks of arrogance. Tor is just so good they don't need to care about the little people that use it. Get out of your golden castle and come back to the people. Or prepare to be overthrown.

Some specialists say that loans help a lot of people to live the way they want, because they are able to feel free to buy necessary stuff. Furthermore, different banks offer auto loan for different classes of people.
