Comment(by asn):

 > I have same problem. Currently running obfs3 bridge is waste of
 resources because bridgedb is unreliable. There is zero support for
 announcing transport ports to bridge db and be able to read them back. You
 can not announce different ports from your listening ports, so there is no
 way to run them on port 80 or 53.
 > This should be high priority for project. Sadly all obfs transport
 things are low priority.

 That's #7875.

 > it would be best if listed bridge can run with disabled ORport.

 That's #7349.
