 bridge operator, or distributed via one of the four other mechanisms but
 too new for Relay Search to know. (The info page should probably mention
 both possibilities.)
 > Your latest screenshot doesn't say anything about that second
 possibility of assignment information not being propagated between
 services yet. I could imagine that impatient new bridge operators will ask
 why their bridge ended up in the None bucket. If you left this note out on
 purpose, maybe in order to keep things short, that's fine by me.
 Yes, that's an oversight. How about this:
 > Bridges whose distribution mechanism is "None" are not distributed by
 BridgeDB.  It is the bridge operator's responsibility to distribute their
 bridges to users.  Note that on Relay Search, a freshly set up bridge's
 distribution mechanism says "None" for a while.  Be a bit patient, and it
 will then change to the bridge's actual distribution mechanism.
 Do we have an approximate time frame within which Relay Search should go
 from "None" to the bridge's actual distribution mechanism?
