There, Bifroest's sanitized bridge descriptors are now available on
The statuses with fingerprint 1D8F3A91C37C5D1C4C19B1AD1D0CFBE8BF72D8E1
are from Bifroest, those with 4A0CCD2DDC7995083D73F5D667100C8A5831F16D
are from Tonga.
The server descriptors and extra-info descriptors files written at
2016-08-31 19:15 are much bigger than usual, because we're catching up
on over two days of bridge descriptors by Bifroest that we had ignored
Let me know if something broke and you think I can do anything about it.
All the best,
