Description

or better/easier to understand documentation. it seems to have people confused on what thandy is and isn't, and there isn't an easy place to point to for answers:

18:53         kwadronaut ) chiiph: where should i read about thandy, because besides isis mentioning it once I can't stop thinking about tandy, you know this 
                           small video screen stuff
18:53  kwadronaut ) it's hard to make meaningful statements if knowledge is lacking
18:53      chiiph ) https://gitweb.torproject.org/thandy.git
18:55 [ (isis) ) kwadronaut: chiiph: perhaps chiiph has followed it more closely, but from what i have understood it was in stasis for some time due to 
                 sebastian having some pretty bad misfortunes, though they have returned now and were at the tor-dev meeting a month ago and seemed determined 
                 to work on it again
18:55  kwadronaut ) chiiph: that's not what I meant. Need some sort of overview, how it works. Does it build software and clients contact it to pull updates?
18:56      chiiph ) isis: yes, I've been exchanging mails with sebastian about it, got to send him some fixes
18:56 [ (isis) ) https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/roadmaps/Thandy
18:56      chiiph ) kwadronaut: all there is, is a specification doc in that repo, otherwise, I could talk as much as you want about it :)
18:57         chiiph ) kwadronaut: it doesn't build software, it's just a cryptographically secure wrapping to download tarballs, if you want to describe it 
                       in 3 words
18:57  kwadronaut ) consider this a bug report: get a readme in there about what it's supposed to do and how it makes that happen ;-)
