     1# Tor in China
     2
     3Current situation: if you have a pluggable transport working in China, Tor will work.  What is the latency in that respect?
     4
     5OONI has better data on what is working in China and what isn't.
     6
     7Lantern's Github forum.
     8
     9Do we know how the GFW works now?
     10
     111. GreatFire.org
     122. Psiphon & Lantern have their own data points because of their funding base
     13
     14Learning more about domestic Chinese developers and users - e.g. Shadowsocks.
     15
     16We should strive not to have a patronizing attitude.  How do we help those that are working within China in their own efforts to circumvent censorship.
     17
     18There are a lot of hackers going to mainland China for hardware production, we chould build links there.
     19
     20More relays and bridges in Asia, for performance purposes in general.  OONI as a network measurement app that could be used in China under the name of a network testing tool.
     21
     22More funding for domain fronting.
     23
     24Better communication of mirrors to those who need it.
     25
     26## Broad Level
     27
     28There's the human aspect: how to do better outreach and communication.  There's also the technical aspect: getting more stats from OONI, mirror reliability, etc.

     32## Summary
     33
     34We had a relatively open-ended discussion on Tor within mainland China.  How do we increase our accessability within China?  We started by acknowledging that we simply need more data - from OONI, as well as user stories from actual Chinese users and keeping lines of dialogue open.  On the broad level, we acknowleged we have two aspects: the human aspect, which encompasses how to do better outreach, communication, and translation.  And theres the technical aspect: how do we do censorship circumvention better, mirror reliability, etc.
