I generated a list from the master branch, and attached it to this ticket. (We have merged all the tor children of #22271.)

The generated list has 139 entries. That's ok. (Ideally, I'd like 150, but right now that might not be possible. We can try for 150-200 next time in #24786.)

I think pastly is building a list as well (or has built a list). I have no good way of choosing between different lists. They should be interchangeable. Unless we come up with a better idea, let's just choose the list with the largest number of fallbacks.

Adding my output. Ran in OVH's Canadian DC.

Diff and grep suggest that there are 11 fallbacks in the CA list but not the AU list; and that there are 7 in the AU list but not the CA list. If I can arithmetic properly, that means there are 150 in the union of the two lists, and 132 in the intersection.

I am happy taking either the union or the intersection. If nobody tells me which way to go today, I'll pick the union.

Yes, let's go with the union. A fallback is still valuable even if it's up half the time. (That's particularly true right now, with the network under extra load, and a bit more unstable than usual.)
