Since you're running the latest and greatest version of the code, you
can look in /var/lib/tor/pt_state/obfs4_bridgeline.txt for your
bridgeline[0], and try connecting to it with the TBB alpha snapshots
I've been providing.


Also, odd.  Debian's wiki states that armhf shouldn't work, but maybe
I'm misreading the documentation (https://wiki.debian.org/RaspberryPi).

Glad to know that it works, and my continued appreciation to Lunar who
made the Debian packages, and thanks for running an obfs4 bridge!

(obfs4proxy can also speak obfs3 if you also want to run one of those,
 as an alternative to installing obfsproxy.  That code is well exercised
 at this point and we have a bridge running it that has pushed multiple
 TB worth of obfs3 traffic.)

[0]: I added that in 0.0.3, you still need to figure out your bridge
IP/port and fingerprint, but it beats pulling out the shared secret
from the json file.
