Description

In #13192, we included a facility to obscure hidden service stats by adding laplace noise. What do think about applying laplace noise to the other statistics we report?

Probably. But let's first see how well this laplace thing works and how it affects our analyses. We should know more in four weeks from now.

#10218 seems like a ticket that might benefit from this.

Give us another two weeks to figure out whether we can really handle statistics with Laplace noise. We should have a tech report ready by end of January.

Also, we still need to tweak the Laplace distribution code; see https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/13192#comment:45 and #14090.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.
