Write up process for distribution of private bridges

We recently supplied an NGO with private bridges, which they intended to distribute among their users. This involved providing installation instructions (How do you download Tor Browser? How do you configure bridges?) and answering questions like:

  • Does obfs4 work in my region?
  • How reliable are these bridges?
  • Who will be running these bridges?

Let's compile all this information into a single document, so once we repeat the process with another NGO, we can point them to this document.

Cool, this page looks good. Just a few comments:

  • The github and gitlab links need an update



  • I don't see text that answers the question of who runs the bridges (other than some text for them setting up their own). Do we need a more specific answer to this question?

Thanks for the review! I addressed your feedback.
I'm closing this ticket because we now have a process. Next, we need to actually go through this process and improve on it. I filed #33145 for this purpose.
