There have been an increasing number of problems lately with the BridgeAuthority (see i.e. #11216 #12254 #15866). Yawning and I have been discussing rewriting it at some point, and it's possible that the entire idea of the BridgeAuthority should be rethought/redesigned.

It could indeed be that we should redesign the bridge authority, but I think many of the bugs you reference are misunderstandings of how Tor works. Or said another way, I don't think the number of problems with the bridge authority is increasing. It continues to behave as it always has. :)

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Remove an old triaging keyword.
