Description (last modified by teor)

We need to rebuild the list of fallbacks in mid or late 2019.
We usually do this when 25% or more go down.
(When 25% of fallbacks are down, a warning is logged daily in #tor-bots on IRC.)

Here are the instructions for running a rebuild:

Milestone: Tor: unspecified

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