Chad, do you want to be on the list linked above?

>>> If you run a bridge relay, please upgrade -- so your bridge address can

>>> being included in the metrics pages.
>>> We just put out new releases (,,,

>>> If for whatever reason you can't upgrade yet, you can also manually

>>> AlternateBridgeAuthority Serge orport=9001 bridge BA44 A889 E64B 93FA A2B1 14E0 2C2A 279A 8555 C533
>> I'd expect such email to be signed - yes, even if people can fetch that

> Please submit a patch to ReleasingTor.md.
