Please test this now and reply whether peers are found and the sync begins for you.
In geth 1.4.12, I am now able to find peers and successfully start syncing.

I’ve tested and my previously non-syncing node now syncs automatically. I retested connectivity to the bootnodes below and the first 3 connect immediately.

It would be interesting to know what caused this non-syncing situation for many geth nodes. Update the node software on their bootnode servers? Reboot their bootnode servers? Make available more connection slots on their bootnode server?
