[BPO] obfs4proxy/0.0.13-1 from jammy

Bug #1967003 reported by wurstsemmel

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
obfs4proxy (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


 * Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS (focal) is a good basis for running a Tor bridge, helping censored users to access the Tor network. A setup guide for Ubuntu is provided by the Tor project [1]. The Tor bridge requires the package obfs4proxy, which is available in version 0.0.8-1 (universe).

 * The outdated version in focal, 0.0.8-1, is responsible for error messages in the log from Tor Browser and causes slow and possibly failing connection (bootstrap) to the Tor network, see related bug report [2]. The more recent version of obfs4proxy solves the issue [3, 4].


 * The package obfs4proxy is available as version 0.0.13-1 in jammy

 * Please backport to focal

[Other Info]

 * The package obfs4proxy is available as version 0.0.13-1~bpo11+1 in Debian bullseye-backports

The backports team does not prepare nor sponsor uploads to backports, only review them. You should find somebody interested in doing the work, testing it, and maintain it, as well as a sponsor for it.

As this still requires a sponsor, I'm unsubscribing ubuntu-backporters team, and subscribing the ubuntu-sponsors team, however it's up to you (wurstsemmel) to follow through with preparing the backported package and finding a sponsor to upload it for you.

Thank you, Dan for your maintenance work. Unfortunately my skillset does not suffice to prepare the backported package or to find a sponsor.
