Comment (by mcs):

 Replying to [comment:58 antonela]:

 > What does happen when the user has more than one old successful bridge
 connection? Will the bridges alreadyobtainedbe shown on a list?

 There is only one service that can be used to obtain bridges: BridgeDB.
 Therefore, there will only ever be one button. The idea of referring to it
 as "torproject.org" is to communicate to users that a network conversation
 will happen and that the bridge info is coming from the Tor Project. After
 someone successfully obtains some bridges from BridgeDB, the bridge info
 is inserted and the button gets a new label (we can decide what the new
 label should be). The UI would look something like this:
  [ ] Select a built-in bridge [i]
  [X] Request a bridge
        obfs4 fingerprint...
        obfs4 fingerprint...
        obfs4 fingerprint...
        [Request a New Bridge…]

  [ ] Provide a bridge I know
 > For first time users, is the double verification also needed? Could they
 have any network leak?

 I think we should require a click on the button on all cases (for
 consistency, and to be safe). In other words, I am convinced by gk's
 argument in comment:49 point 4).
