[tor-project] Cecylia's Monthly Status Report, May 2022

Hi everyone,

This is my status report for contract work in May 2022.

1. Onboarding itchyonion on Sponsor 28 deliverables:

    * Helped itchyonion find and debug a race condition in Snowflake that was caught in the s28 test environment [0]

2. Conjure pluggable transport for Tor

    * Finished setting up a VM-based test environment for Conjure [1]

    * Found and fixed some pain points with setting up test Conjure station [2,3]

    * Updated the Conjure Tor PT client after debugging it in the test environment [4]

This month I'll be continuing work on the Conjure PT. The client is close to having everything it needs for a minimum viable connection. My focus will be on figuring out how to connect through the station to a Tor bridge.
