[liberationtech] Fwd: An update on Tahir

Hello everyone,

It seems to have been a while since the last message to this list so I
thought I'd give another update. Google has selected Tahrir as a project to
be worked on for their Summer of Code program which is basically a program
for students where they are funded to work on Open Source projects.

I am the student who has been selected to work full time on Tahrir over the
summer in hopes of building a working alpha version. Ian has agreed to
mentor me for this process and has bought me up to speed with the code base.

What I will be doing is developing a network maintenance system that will
efficiently manage a small world network, a broadcast system for messages
based on a gossip protocol and developing a GUI complete with contact
management features with other basic things you'd expect from a
micro-blogging platform. I will also ensure that everything will be
conveniently packaged and easily installable for an end user. This will
hopefully all be completed by before the end of August.

Note however that this will only be an alpha and much more work will still
be needed to offer full anonymity among other things and work on this will
begin after the alpha is complete.
