Tonga isn't deduplicating bridge-server-descriptors anymore

The BridgeAuthority used to deduplicate @type bridge-server-descriptors (but not @type bridge-extrainfos). It isn't doing either now.

I can fix this on BridgeDB, trivially, because I've already got the bridgedb.parse.descriptors.deduplicate() function for handling the extrainfos. Or… perhaps this was broken somehow during #14797 when we moved BridgeDB to polyanthum, like perhaps something was changed on Tonga? We could fix it on BridgeDB or Tonga, I have no preference; feel free to change the Component to something that makes more sense.

This problem perhaps has been going on for longer than I previously thought. If so, it might have also been part of the cause for #12676.

Let me know what, if anything, I should change on Tonga...

I don't think Tonga ever deduplicated bridge descriptors. That's not what Tor does.

The networkstatus file specifies the descriptor that it's talking about, and you can find that descriptor in the cached-descriptors files.

That is, Tonga just copies over its cached descriptor files, which includes older versions of the descriptors too. This is normal and expected.
