Vidalia offers a graphical user interface to start and stop Tor, view
its status at a glance, and monitor its bandwidth usage.
Vidalia also makes it easy to contribute to
the Tor network by helping you set up a Tor server.
Tor protects privacy in communications via a distributed network of
relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents anybody
watching Internet connections from learning what sites you visit,
and it prevents the visited sites from learning your physical
location. Tor works with web browsers, instant messaging programs,
remote login clients, and many other TCP-based applications.

vidalia (0.2.20-2) unstable; urgency=low
* New patches cherry-picked from upstream 0.2.21:
- Fix-wrong-uptime-bandwidth-in-relay-list.patch (Closes: #699178)
This is upstream commit b3d4f7f with the changes/* file removed.
- Populate-the-relay-list-at-startup.patch (Closes: #699179)
This is taken from upstream commit b00f51dc, but with the fix for
upstream Trac#6482 (that doesn't seem worth a freeze exception) and
the changes/* file removed.
