I've expressed interest in the past about running default obfs4 bridges
and am still willing to do so.

I'd like to hold off actually setting them up till its close to the time
that Tor Browser will integrate them. I hear it's better for the default
bridges to not advertise and I'd rather they didn't sit paid for but
idle for too long.

You can find me on IRC as pastly.
