It seems like Azure Domain Fronting may already be going offline,
according to some reports. Our own testing from US and EU show that it
is still working for now.
That said, here is our plan for updating Orbot and Onion Browser in
response to what may come at any moment:
1) Move to Fastly for Snowflake and Moat as soon as they are ready.
Please keep us posted on this.
2) Remove Meek as a built-in option.
3) Promote "social distribution" of bridge URLs via links and QR codes
through communities that need them
4) Work on setting up our own additional pool of CDN front addresses for
Moat and the Snowflake broker(s) that we can round-robin/cat-and-mouse
through for both Snowflake and Moat. These would be compiled into our
apps, or provided through some kind of S3/hard to block bootstrap URL.
5) Continue our own work in mobile-specific bridge distribution (push
messages, SMS, chat bots, social etc) options we can employ in the future.
.... any other things to know, that we missed, that we are being naive
