Is it a good idea to establish bridges within repressive countries (China, Iran, etc.), or a bad idea?
On one hand, having the bridge within the country removes the "foreign" stigma from that IP address for purposes of filtering/censorship. On the other hand, does this mean that the bridge will then attempt to connect to a published relay IP address, making it obvious that it is an entry node?
Considering this topic in light of Belarus's recent ban on Tor.
