 Hi isis!

 I am posting the reply in this ticket since it seems to be more related to
 the topic:

 >This API won't be publicly accessible though, it'll be reachable through
 the API for #22871, and even then it's only reachable through a special
 meek reflector as part of #16650.
 I love the idea to "Set up domain fronting for BridgeDB:. The benefits are
 huge as described in #16650.

 However, meek has not been supported neither by Whonix nor by Tails so
 far. It is very likely because meek has not been packaged in to Debian as
 a standalone client because of its increasingly high-coupling with TBB:

 I will also ask Tails about why meek is not available in Tails, given that
 Tails does ship a Tor Browser (unlike Whonix-gateway).

 > Is anon-connection-wizard what Tails uses now? I'd be happy to support
 Tails as well (but I'd strongly prefer the connection to go through the
 meek reflector).

 anon-connection-wizard has not been used by Tails so far. But some quick
 and dirty test on integrating anon-connection-wizard has been done by
 anonym from Tails. Some details can be found here:
