The Tor Project is not a horizontal organization but we try to make decisions as democratic as possible. We have a structure where we operate and maintain the different pieces of software in teams. Our teams meet once a week to coordinate work and also meet frequently to coordinate projects. We have a project manager that facilitates the coordination and keeps an eye on the roadmaps to get to deadlines on time.
As of August 2021, we are starting to implement OKRs to set goals per team and role and track outcomes and organize the work ahead.
- Anti-censorship team meets every Thursday in irc and is working on this roadmap.
- Applications team (Tor Browser) meets every Monday in irc.oftc.net and is working on this roadmap.
