What Moritz says is right.

We're calling the obfsproxy bundles the pluggable transports bundles
now: https://blog.torproject.org/blog/new-pluggable-transports-bundles-02411-alpha-flashproxy-obfsproxy.

My future plan for not having separate bundles is

I don't anticipate having stable pluggable transports bundles before the
pluggable transport bundles become obsolete (i.e., become part of the
standard browser bundle).
