It looks like dgoulet has the connection, circuit, and IPv6 knowledge needed to review this proposal.

Neel has submitted the latest version of his proposal to the tor-dev mailing list. Here is my next review:

I have some overall comments on the proposal:

  1. The proposal is very large now. Let's add an intro section that splits the changes into:
    • initial feasability testing
    • minimum viable product
    • parameter tuning
    • optional features, and how we will know if we need them
  2. Bridges can't be configured with an IPv4 and an IPv6 address in tor, because tor only accepts one IP address per bridge. Let's be clear that bridges are out of scope. (Tor already attempts to connect to all? its configured bridges.)
  3. Each revision of this proposal has added text. Is there any text that is redundant or not useful. Can we make it shorter?

Some comments.

What we need is asn or/and nickm to have a look at this since they can tell us if this change is inline with the Guard subsystem behaviors.
