Description

obfs4proxy was package in Debian in #12910, but is currently only available in Debian testing and unstable.

Producing backports for Debian jessie and currently supported Ubuntu suites would improve availability to relay operators, and make it easier for relay operators to run useful bridges.

I'm happy to do this work, but it should be coordinated with infinity0/lunar who currently maintain the package in Debian. I'm also happy for them to do the backporting work.

For the Ubuntu backports, we should host these on deb.tpo (and if we choose to do so we should host Debian packages (sid, stretch, jessie) there too for completeness.

We actually do provide backports:
https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/dists/obfs4proxy/main/binary-amd64/Packages

(They haven't been updated for the recent releases though.)

The rationale for using a custom suite is 1. it's too complicated to backport all the Go dependencies; 2. we don't need to do it because the resulting binary is statically linked.

So I believe this is more a problem of documentation and ownership on updates. :)

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