Description

Hello. The Tor Arabic translations are %100 complete in Transifex, and the TBB is %100 Arabic, however there is no Arabic version for the Obfsproxy bundle. Many users in the Arab world need an Arabic Obfsproxy, so please release it if possible.

If there are extra strings to be translated to Arabic, please put them in Transifex and I'll translate them immediately.

Cheers guys, you're our heroes. Seriously.

Assuming it's not currently feasible to support 18 languages for the obfsproxy bundles, which ones should we support? Should it be arabic, farsi, and chinese? Or are there others as well? Or should I begin making all languages for all bundles? (I don't think the infrastructure *currently* supports it, but we should figure out if it's something we want and then adapt the infrastructure to it.)

How far away are we from having just one bundle that ships with obfsproxy? Would it make more sense to focus on that first, or to focus on fixing the infrastructure to be able to build translated obfs-tbbs?

We don't have a set timeline. A rough timeline is basically "whenever 0.2.4.x becomes the new alpha", since we don't want to add any complexity to the current alpha bundles. But I don't know what asn's thoughts are on the stability of obfsproxy or whether there's any good reason to avoid shipping it integrated with the alpha bundles once that happens. Adding him to Cc just in case he has some comments (feel free to remove yourself, asn!)

Integrating obfsproxy in the new alpha bundles sounds like a good idea. As far as its stability is concerned, the latest obfsproxy seems to be pretty stable and all nasty bugs (we know of) have been fixed.

Also, 0.2.4.x introduces some more pluggable-transport-related features and it would make sense to have obfsproxy there to use them.

Closing this since we've had arabic obfsproxy bundles for a while now.
