Comment (by irl):

 In order to avoid leaking bridge fingerprint and IP address information,
 this is obfuscated by the Onionoo service that Atlas uses to provide the
 relay and bridge data. In order to search for data about your bridge, you
 will need to search for the SHA1 hash of your bridge's identity
 fingerprint, not just the plain fingerprint.

 On Linux and other Unix-like platforms, your fingerprint can often be
 found in {{{/var/lib/tor/fingerprint}}}. On some platforms it may be in a
 different location, but can also be found in your Tor log files.

 If you're using a Linux or Unix-like system and your fingerprint is found
 in {{{/var/lib/tor/fingerprint}}}, you can use the following command to
 generate the SHA1 hash to search in Atlas:

 # cat /var/lib/tor/fingerprint | sha1sum

 or if you have extracted the fingerprint from your log files:

 # echo -n "EXTRACTEDFINGERPRINT" | sha1sum


 This is some draft text that I'm planning to integrate into the new help
 page coming out of #6787.
