 Kathy and I are making this code available for review. It has been in a
 nearly finished state for a long time. The patch is here:

 There are still some dependencies that need to be resolved:
 * You will need to compile and use a `meek-client` and `meek-client-
 torbrowser` that includes the fix for #24642. We do not have a new meek
 tag yet so you will need to pull the code from dcf's bug24642 branch.
 * For some reason the deployed BridgeDB does not return any bridges (see
 https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/24432#comment:24). In the
 meantime, I set up a '''very temporary''' BridgeDB test server. Note that
 it is not behind a domain fronting setup, it does not use TLS, it only has
 fake bridges, and since it does not have any vanilla ones you should
 request obfs4 bridges. Here are pref settings for the test server:
  pref("extensions.torlauncher.bridgedb_front", "");
  pref("extensions.torlauncher.bridgedb_bridge_type", "obfs4");
 Oh, and our test server uses really easy CAPTCHAs except for one BridgeDB
