### Looking Forward: Tor in 2021
https://blog.torproject.org/tor-in-2021
This year has been difficult for all of us. As individuals, we’ve had to adapt to the new normal of COVID-19, and as an organization, the Tor Project also had to adapt to our “new normal” after we made the difficult decision to let go of one third of our organization. Although challenging, we have managed to reorganize in order to meet the goals we originally set for 2020, and now, it’s time to look forward to 2021.
We have shared many of our goals for the next year, including addressing the "Tor is too slow" complaint, supporting the relay operator community, improving network health, developing a Rust Tor implementation, & unblocking Tor through outreach. Read more about our plans from our executive director, Isabela Bagueros: https://blog.torproject.org/tor-in-2021
### Moving Tor from Trac to Gitlab
https://blog.torproject.org/node/1957
Tor had been using Trac (https://trac.torproject.org) until June 2020, when we moved to our self-hosted instance of Gitlab administered by the Tor sysadmin team (https://gitlab.torproject.org). We're hoping Gitlab will be a good fit because:
- Gitlab will allow us to collect our different engineering tools into a single application: Git repository handling, Wiki, Issue tracking, Code reviews, and project management tooling.
- Gitlab is well-maintained, while Trac plugins are not well maintained and Trac itself hasn't seen a release for over a year (since 2019).
- Gitlab will allow us to build a more modern approach to handling Continuous Integration for our different projects.
We spent several months fixing and testing problems on data migration, from formatting issues to addressing where the information that lived in Trac should live in Gitlab. We tested the Gitlab instance with a few projects until we jumped into migrating all data from Trac. You can read more about this migration process on our blog: https://blog.torproject.org/node/1957
### Watch PrivChat #3 with Edward Snowden
https://torproject.org/privchat
For our third edition of PrivChat on December 11, we brought together some real-life Tor users who shared how Tor has been important for them and their work to defend human rights and freedoms around the world.
Hosted by Edward Snowden, PrivChat featured technologist and privacy researcher Ramy Raoof, librarian and founder of Library Freedom Project, Alison Macrina, and Africa Policy Manager and Global Internet Shutdowns Lead at Access Now, Berhan Taye.
Watch the full PrivChat: Advancing Human Rights with Tor (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2N3GoewgC8), and be on the lookout for our next PrivChat in 2021.
