I can't find these changes that I requested to the proposal:

These parts of the proposal exist, but they are not in separate sections:

This modification is not in the current proposal:

>> 2. Bridges can't be configured with an IPv4 and an IPv6 address in tor, because tor only accepts one IP address per bridge. Let's be clear that bridges are out of scope. (Tor already attempts to connect to all? its configured bridges.)

I added some suggest text to make bridges out of scope for this proposal.

I don't see any deleted text:

>> 3. Each revision of this proposal has added text. Is there any text that is redundant or not essential? Can we make it shorter?

David suggested we delete one section, and I suggested we keep some of it, but delete most of it. I also suggested we move some alternative options to an appendix.

Is there anything else you think we can delete?
