Thanks for the information. Is it likely that obfs3 and scramblesuit
will be usable in the long-term? Or will they need to be deprecated at
some point like obfs2?

Also, if obfs3 or scramblesuit were deprecated, but some FreedomBoxes
continued to run those transports, what would be the result? Would the
worst case be that the bridge is no longer usable by some, as in [0]?

The reason that I'm asking is that FreedomBox is currently working
within Debian "testing" but our target is Debian "stable". Once our
packaged configuration is frozen for the next stable release, it will
be more difficult for us to push changes other than security fixes.
