Description (last modified by cohosh)

The traditional way of distributing bridge information is to give bridge IP/connection information through BridgeDB and add that information to the Tor Browser configuration.

Snowflake and meek handle "bridge" information differently at the client side, and we might like to consider a broader application of the Snowflake/broker style of distributing bridges. To do so, we should look into what changes we need to make at the client side to make this distribution easier.
