[tor-dev] Filtering of DA and bootstrap

Hi all,

in a network where the Directory Authority hard-coded in Tor code are
filtered a Tor client cannot bootstrap.

But as far as i understood there are (hundreds?) of Tor DA Mirror.

If so, packaging the Tor clients periodically, bundling the latest
consensus with the software, would provide higher chance for a client to
bootstrap, finding an unfiltered Tor DA Mirror.

Is this assumption true?
