If anyone is interested, I have some minor spelling and editing
suggestions for the primary design document. For reference, there's a
copy at

1.1 Goals and Non-Goals, page 3.
Currently "defeat author identification based on linguistic analyzes"
I suggest "defeat author identification based on linguistic analysis"

1.3.1 Location Privacy, age 3.
Currently " . . . it makes totally sense to do that."
I suggest " . . . it totally makes sense to do that."

1.3.2 Pseudonymity
Currently ". . . does not want to loose their job"
I suggest ". . . does not want to lose their job"

2.1 Assumptions. Page 5.
Currently: "We assume that SSL/TLS [60] is reasonable secure . . . "
I suggest: "We assume that SSL/TLS [60] is reasonably secure . . . "

As far as getting the bird up and running myself, I was just getting
plain "cannot connect to server" errors. I think I screwed up the
general email server settings, but I also didn't realize that I had to
run a Tor instance. Once I got tor running, I was good to go. For the
record, I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 with Thunderbird 14.0, tor, and

OK, peace everyone. Thanks a lot to Jacob Appelbaum, Sukhbir Singh and
tagnaq for getting this off the ground. (saw you three in the
acknowledgements at https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/torbirdy )


P.S. did my reply add to the thread? I am new to mailing lists and reply-to.
