[tor-project] Rhatto's Monthly Status Report, February 2023

Hi all :slight_smile:

This is my monthly status report for February 2023 with the main activities I
have done during the period.

## 0. Research

* Joined Network Team's Onion Service Working Group, which is aimed at
  improving the current technology.

  I'm joining as someone who's more at the operational side of things and
  that's interested in a range of usability topics, from enhanced
  deployment/monitoring tools to certificates and service discovery.

## 1. Development

* Internal security policy work for the Onion Support Group and the Community

  Such work might in the future be another step towards the broader security
  policies work at Tor, which is detailed at
  TPA-RFC-18: Tor security policy (#41) · Issues · The Tor Project / Organization · GitLab

## 2. Support

* Ongoing Sponsor 123 deployments, monitoring and maintenance.

* Custom support for Onion Service deployment.

  This is being an interesting experiment about setting up an Onion Service for
  an organization without dedicated IT staff, requiring a setup with minimum
  maintenance effort.

## 3. Organization

* Detailed planning on my workload allocation and activity scenarios, split
  between research, development and support.

  This is helping me to figure out how my time can be split between different
  teams, initiatives, sponsors etc and also reduce the number of
  daily/weekly/monthly context changes.
