Thanks for working on this list.

I see a bunch of people on IRC often mention that are unable to download Tor
Browser or get tor packages for their distributions. The same users usually find
all subdomains of torproject.org blocked. For these scenarios a better plan
should be established specifically on:

- How people can access *.torproject.org website mirrors
- Download and verify Tor Browser (when the canonical documentation is blocked)
- Add/fix gateways to provide Tor Browser and tor packages (Signal, Telegram,
Whatsapp, XMPP, support more email providers, ...)
- Use alternative methods to retrieve tor packages in their distributions (for
instance in Debian package apt-transport-https), common scenario of DPI/keyword
- Allow user to submit an "anonymized" log report; either via a button in Tor
Browser or a helper script in tor package. This will help us enormously to
understand which method (combination of PT/Bridge or something else) worked (if
any) in their case to bootstrap Tor.
