It's working much better now. Things started improving just a few hours
after I posted my previous message, around last Friday afternoon PDT.
The web page and email channels started giving out vanilla bridges again
(usually 2), and I consistently got 2 obfs4 bridges via Moat and the web
page. I just checked again and got 3 obfs4 bridges via Moat, 2 vanilla
bridges via both the web page and email, and 2 obfs4 bridges via the web
I'm not sure how obfs4 bridges being unreachable would have prevented
bridgedb from just giving them out anyway (pretty sure it can't tell on
its own), or how any obfs4 issues would prevent it from giving out
vanillas, but whatever you did starting last Friday seems to have
unclogged the pipes. I'm still seeing weird connection issues with the
bridges that I do get; sometimes they work, others they fail with
similar errors to the logs I reported before, even though I'm just using
the stock TBB 8.5.3 release, and connecting it normally without a bridge
or selecting one of the built-in default bridges always works fine so
there don't seem to be any local system issues. I've no idea what's
going on there, but at least bridges are being distributed again. Thanks
for your efforts.
