Description

In #24785, we decreased the fallback stability requirements due to the increased network load from December 2017.

We should work out whether we can raise them again.

These tickets, tagged with 034-removed-*, are no longer in-scope for 0.3.4. We can reconsider any of them, if time permits.

This ticket is part of the minimal fallback rebuild, but we seem to have picked a food stability threshold, so it might not need to change:

8/150 = 5% of fallbacks are currently down.

At this rate, it will be 2019 before we reach our 25% failure threshold.
So we don't need to do a fallback rebuild in 0.3.4.

We don't need to raise the fallback stability requirements in 0.3.5.
The current requirements gave us a list that is stable enough to last for 12 months.

Milestone: Tor: unspecified

After #27914, fallback-scripts is its own repository. Fallback changes are no longer tied to Tor releases.
