Please create a pluggable-transport that looks like vpn traffic to shut up all those that recommend non-tech savy users to use a vpn before tor and putting them at risk in the process.
The common argument is that it is a big deal if the ISP sees that they are using tor, but for a nonsensical reason a vpn is perfectly fine for the ISP.

I really think a PT that can pretend to be "regular" traffic like a VPN, Skype etc should be worked on asap even if we have other PTs.

Since this kind of project will take some time and with the threats of governments looking into censoring/blocking Tor increasing, it's probably wise to look into creating one sooner rather than later.

asn does not need to own any obfuscation tickets any more. Default owners are trouble.

tickets were assigned to asn, setting them as unassigned (new) again.
