By default, each Tor bridge publishes a descriptor to the ‘bridge
authority’.  Every hour, the bridge authority sends the descriptors of
currently running bridges to bridges.torproject.org, which distributes
them to users who request bridges over HTTPS and by e-mail.

Distributing bridge addresses once a week is not useful.  Most bridges
move to a different IP address every 24 hours.
