    21= Sponsor4 - Core Tor Team Objective =
    3 
    42== Objective 1: Empower users with limited access to powerful devices and fast networks to access and more easily use secure, private networks in faster, more stable online interactions. ==
    5 
    63=== SubObjective 1.1: Reduce Tor overhead for low-bandwidth scenarios. ===
    7 
    84Coordination between various components of the Tor Network and Tor clients creates a lof of processing overhead for clients, including browsers and chat applications. This can make communicating and interacting over Tor seem painfully slow for users. By reducing one particular kind of network "housekeeping" communication, we believe we can noticeably speed up client interactions, with a noticeable corollary improvement in user experience.

    2520= Implementation plan - draft =
    26 
    2721Under this sub-objective, we are reducing our bandwidth overhead for low-bandwidth scenarios as much as possible, with a focus on the directory protocol.

    3125== Here are some questions we should work on answering soon, to focus our work. ==
    32 
    3326 * What actually is the bandwidth overhead for a few simple client situations?
    3427 * How much of that is in the directory protocol?  In what parts?
     
    3932
    4033== Here are the mitigations we could begin doing on a "near" timeframe: ==
    41 
    4234 * Consensus diffs (proposal 140, code in-progress).
    4335 * Improved consensus compression (needs proposal)
     
    4840
    4941== But here's what we should do first: ==
    50 
    51  * Measure!  #[https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21205 21205].  Begin now, start having results within 2 weeks, coding done within 1 month.
    52  * Design!  #[https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21209 21209]. Begin now, finish within 2 months, depending on measurement.
     42 * Measure!  #[https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21205 21205].  Begin in January, start having results within 2 weeks, coding done within 1 month, all results done within 2 months.
     43 * Design!  #[https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21209 21209]. Begin in January, finish within 2 months, depending on measurement.
    5344 * Implement #[https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/21215 21215] . Begin within a month. Additional time TBD based on previous steps.
    5445 * Allow post-implementation time for debugging, and further improvements TBD as we find them.
