Hi Isis, thought it was a mistake but evidently not citing the CollecTor specification is intentional. Maybe I'm misunderstanding this ticket?

Yep, no worries, it was intentional! The ticket for formalising the CollecTor documentation and putting that into torspec is #22827. (This one is about the format of the unsanitised bridge descriptors, before they make it into CollecTor.)

I guess this is probably my job to do at some point, but if someone else is very excited about it, I'm happy to help them get the descriptors for the public/default Tor Browser bridges so they can see what they look like and specify them in dir-spec.txt.

isis: Sounds great to me. I also included some thoughts on such a dir-spec patch in this comment on #22207. Would you want to write the patch, and I do a first review before it goes to nickm or whoever else reviews/merges torspec patches?

Sounds great! Thanks for offering to review!

FWIW, we finished the specification of sanitized bridge descriptors and put it up here.
