Description

In #3223 I suggested annotating each bridge with how many days it's been in the emails.

The harder step is to annotate each bridge with whether we think it's still reachable from $country. The country would be a function of the recipient of the email (China, to start out with).

There are a variety of steps that need to happen before we can close this ticket though -- e.g. a) doing a reachability test from in-country, b) correlating that result with a reachability test from out-of-country, to make sure it didn't simply go down, c) giving that info to bridgedb and having it parse it (see also #1837), and then d) using it when constructing the bridge emails.

Is that a complete / accurate list of steps?

BridgeDB adds the text "Might be blocked in" and a list of country codes when it is known to have been blocked in those countries to the reserved bridge mails, if it is configured with such information. It doesn't try to guess what country the email address is in, though.
