[tor-relays] Bridge relays should upgrade to use the new bridge authority

Hello tor-relay folks,

I'm confused--not a new thing but likely that this group can help this 
time.  After Roger's email below, I updated my Tor bridges to current.  
Strangely, NYX reports that they are the "un-recommended" release.  When 
I check with tor --version, I get a reply that is the current software.  
Additionally, my bridges don't display when I enter their hashed 
footprint into Tor Metrix.  They always have before.

What goes on?
