    18 oonibackend [XXX] is used by ooni, the Open Observatory of Network
    19 Interference [XXX], to run in the background and perform tasks like
    20 discovering addresses of test helpers and performing measurements that
    21 require a backend system to talk to. When oonibackend was changed to fix
    22 compatibility with Twisted 13.1 it lost its ability to start tor and
    23 then drop privileges [XXX]. Arturo suspects that the correct way of
    24 doing this is to place the logic for starting tor inside of
    25 preApplication or startService. But from a quick research he suspects
    26 that Twisted does not support returning Deferreds in there. He also
    27 points to two relevant Twisted tickets [XXX, XXX]. If you have
    28 experience with Twisted and want to help debug or even solve this
    29 problem, be sure to post your thoughts or patches to the ticket.
