  19. Hey,
  20.  
  21. Lucky announced[0] that he is quitting all his Tor involvement including
  22. operation of Tonga and several relays. The relays should not cause any
  23. problems, but we need to deploy a new bridge auth asap, make sure it can
  24. transfer descriptors as the current one does etc.
  25.  
  26. We need a supremely trusted operator for this, as they see sensitive
  27. data that they shouldn't lose, as well as someone who is able to provide
  28. a very high-availability system because bridge auth works quite
  29. differently compared to the dirauth system.
  30.  
  31. Nevertheless, this will cause severe disruption for the bridge ecosystem
  32. as our users typically take a long time to update their version of Tor.
  33. We should strive to have this set up very soon and included in a Tor
  34. release well before Aug 31, and yet it will still cause disruptions.
  35.  
  36. The above is just my take on the whole thing and I'm somewhat shocked by
  37. the development.
  38.  
  39. Sebastian
