Hello Felix,

Thanks for your generous offer!  I don't want to speak for the Tor Browser
Team, but I think we'd be happy to take you up on it.  I can add your obfs4
bridges to Tor Browser's default bridges, or—if you would be excited to
write the patch—I can show you where/what to edit.  Please let me know which
you'd prefer. :)

Please don't paste it here on the list, but we'll need the IP(s), obfs4
ports, fingerprints, and bridgelines for your bridges.  The fingerprint
should be in $DATA_DIRECTORY/fingerprint and the bridgeline should be in

Thanks again!

Best regards,
