[tor-talk] confirming obfsproxy published/unpublished data for my bridge (was RE: Does Atlas support looking for bridges?)

The onionoo link confirms my bridge is known to exist..was beginning to
worry :)  (I know, patience)

However, shouldn't there be a flag indicating obfs2 and obfs3 ports or
something?  Ports are open and I can telnet to their garbled text from

Also, how important is it for a bridge to maintain the same IP address over
the long term?

Atlas does not yet support looking for bridges.  See #6320.

You're right, it's lying about being able to discover bridges.

See Onionoo's protocol specification for details to query bridge data.
Onionoo supports everything that's necessary for Atlas to show bridge
information.  It's just not in a human-friendly format.

Well, the back-end can handle bridge nicknames.  It's just that Atlas
can't make use of returned bridge information yet.

Having bridge support in Atlas would be awesome!  Want to submit a patch?
