Description (last modified by mikeperry)

Instead of "just" TIMBB, we could provide people with a whole private communications suite. This would include a customized and patched Pidgin, Thunderbird, and Tor Browser, perhaps together, or perhaps as "plugins" to some Tor platform.

Depending on amount, the funding for this could also go towards support of some kind of VoIP (see #5700 and #5699).

Smaller amounts of funding could be use to further prototypes of this idea (TorBirdy, patches to Pidgin, patches to FOSS VoIP projects, etc).

See also #6600 for extending this communications platform into hidden service addresses.

This ticket is tagged SponsorZ, but it looks like progress stalled two years ago. Is this still an open issue that needs funding?

Mike, I think this is a question for you, around what you originally envisioned.

One answer might be "We have Tor Messenger now" -- is that enough?

Or is this ticket more about exploring some sort of integrated platform that shares one underlying Tor client, yet has Tor Browser, Tor Messenger, Thunderbird+Torbirdy, etc available in it?
