A note on this (I don't handle packaging, sorry).  obfs4 propbably
should be added to the dropdown once there is a critical mass of
bridges in the database, and when obfs4 is in official Tor Browser
builds.  As far as I am aware, the official integration (as opposed to
my obsolete not-really-working-anymore snapshots) is scheduled to
happen in the next alpha series.

Regarding obfs2, it still "works" in some environments if the DPI used
by the censor is not particularly sophisticated (not targeted
specifically at detecting obfs2). I personally think that it should be
deprecated sooner rather than later, but others have disagreed with me
on this.

Hope that helps,
