During bootstrap, some minimum number of application circuits must be established before bootstrapping will complete. Right now, the user will receive no feedback of intermediate progress as a bootstrap circuit is being built. We should make this more granular, probably with intermediate progress at each EXTEND, to make visible when Tor is being slow to build circuits.

This might happen as a side effect of some of the #22266 work, but isn't an essential part of it.

#27167 makes this easier by adding the bootstrap tracker subsystem. Right now we don't quite have all the right data in the origin circuit events to make this incremental application circuit progress reporting work. Some approaches include adding more status events, or reporting the count of established circuit hops with each EXTEND event.
