I believe the widespread community concerns about the trustworthiness of the Tor Project are rooted in Tor's secret internal politics.

Tickets #1971 and #19690 both show that these internal politics are spilling over into the technical realm, too. This needs to stop.

I suggest a new strategy: full transparency for all internal operations. Everything about the Tor project should be immediately and publicly visible. Complete archives of lists like dir-auth should also be made available

Please have a look at the mailing lists at
You'll find several lists where full and immediate transparency is counterproductive and even a threat to our users (think of a 0day sent to tor-security@).
