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