Community Bonding Period - Week 2
This week I expanded my knowledge about “receiving IRC messages 24/7”, even while my computer is turned off. This was an important issue for me to solve since IRC doesn’t buffer the incoming messages. Instead, users need to have special systems to buffer these messages, so that the users can view buffered messages once they are available.
Meanwhile, I started talking to the OONI people about improving my project and benefitting from their past experience in this field.
Finally, I sent a semi-formal introduction about my project to the tor-dev mailing list and asked to get some feedback from the community. I waited to finalize the wiki article to send this email because I thought it would be more meaningful to have documentation of the project attached to the email. I also brainstormed about various approaches for getting feedback and having the community involved in the idea development process.
Once again, I am looking forward to finishing the finals for my university classes and start working on the code!
