Discuss shipping and enabling tor-fw-helper by default
We have a sponsor F deliverable for either July or November 2012 to "investigate NAT piercing approaches for relays and bridges."
Jake says that, in theory, we need to ship tor-fw-helper and actually enable it. That will fix 90% of the NAT issues that we have right away. It's been merged for a year but we're still not shipping it and enabling it by default. Steven just finished the Windows port of tor-fw-helper.
Does that mean we can now ship and enable it on all platforms in the next major Tor release, which is probably going to be 0.2.4.x?
If not, what's left to do? Or is it a bad idea for some reason?
