Description (last modified by arma)

A user from China suggests at
http://blog.torproject.org/blog/bridge-distribution-strategies#comment-3336 :
"I have a fairly long list of bridges in my settings tab now, and I have no
idea which are actually of any use to me, and which are dead. Would it be
possible to have some visual indicator in the Vidalia bridge config dialog
that shows which bridges are healthy and which are not?"

This is a great idea, and we should do it. Perhaps Tor should expose this info
via a 'getinfo bridge-status' or equivalent, and then we can show which ones
are configured, which we have a fresh descriptor for, which we've found
reachable, etc. Once we've got the Tor side figured out, then Vidalia could
ask for the bridge status when you open the bridge config window, and mark them
as appropriate.

It's called ‘getinfo entry-guards’. Do we need to add more information to that, or add an ‘entry-guards-v2’ item that returns more information, or just reassign this ticket to Vidalia/chiiph?

I'm tentatively closing this, since we couldn't think of anything needed here that entry-guards didn't do.
