Bridges running 0.3.4.x before suffer from #28912, where you basically can't bootstrap from them unless they have other people fetching directory information from them at the same time as you try. Same with 0.3.5.x before I think.

Now that is out, and are out, hopefully bridges will upgrade. But for the ones that don't, we might be wise in bridgedb to decline to give them out.

I wonder what fraction of bridges this affects currently? I cc irl and karsten to find out.
