The Whonix project would like to ship default bridges. As suggested by Roger, these should ideally differ from the default bridges shipped with TBB.

The ones that will be hardcoded in the source code. And shipped together with anon-connections-wizard. (Which is a python rewrite of tor-launcher for the whole system.) (screenshots)

Ideally, these should not be given out by BridgeDB to other users since these will become semi-public. (Anyone bothering to read the source code will find them.)

Please send them by private [encrypted] mail to adrelanos at riseup dot net.

Keep your time. There likely will be no new release before March 2016.

Why do these need to be provided by the Tor Project? Go and find community members to run bridges with the transports you like, with PublishServerDescriptor 0 in the torrc to prevent them from being distributed by BridgeDB.

(This does also disqualify said bridges contributing to the metrics data, but I assume you all don't care about that).
