"Normal" bridges are sent to the BridgeDatabase (BridgeDB), where they
get into different "pools" for distribution. (Pools = website, email).

There is no public list of those bridges to make blocking harder. I got
told that I shouldn't go out and tell the whole world that I run bridge
and which IP it got.

Bridges can be made private, by not telling the BridgeDB about it's
existence. It's useful when you want to run a bridge, but only your
friends from a restricted country should use it.

As far as I understood the new bridges (with the proxy) need to be send
to tor-assistants@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx manually.

When one tells a public list e.g. "tor-talk" the IP and port of it's
bridge with proxy it could be easily blacklisted, which would make it
