Description (last modified by karsten)

Sponsor F deliverable 22 is about implementing one or more datagram-based designs and experimenting with them based on the mid-March testing plan. We'll discuss the details once deliverable 3 (#4683) is done. Steven says he's going to lead this deliverable.

Now that #4683 is done, how do we proceed here?

Can we agree on a schedule containing substeps and dates to turn this huge single block of work into bite-sized pieces?

It might also be useful to identify pieces that can be done by a Tor person with little clue of simulating things or by a simulation person with little clue of writing Tor patches.

I assume November is still the deadline we aim for and that July is unrealistic. Please correct me if that's not the case.

Some notes from the #tor-dev meeting on April 12:

  • Steven hopes we can get a GSoC student to help. We shouldn't rely on him/her alone though. We'll learn on April 23 whether we have a GSoC student for this project or not. Roger suggested that Nick signs up as co-mentor for a student working on this, if we get one.
  • Roger and Steven agreed that we shouldn't rely too much on Rob and Kevin for the coding work; Rob's priority should be to get a PhD and Kevin is going away soon.
  • Roger mentioned that if our simulator woes continue, they will impact this deliverable, too.
  • Nick offered to help out with the coding work if Steven plays manager for him. Nick says that he shouldn't do all the hacking though. Adding Nick to the Cc.
  • Steven plans to write a milestone mail to Karsten, Nick, and maybe others over the weekend of April 14/15. Once these milestones are final, they should go in this ticket.

Do we have a GSoC student for this work? And what are the final milestones from the email sent April 14/15?

Resolution: implemented
Severity: Normal
Status: newclosed

Sponsor F has ended years ago, and we did implement and experiment with a datagram-based design. Given that nobody has touched this ticket in the past 4 years, time to close it.
