Description

Someone provided this suggestion to the help desk:

It doesn't say concrete which ExitPolicy lines i have to set, if I want to run an (non-exit) Relay.
Of course the /etc/tor/torrc contains very good comments and one can look up the excellent existing documentation
(which I did and now the relay is running how i want it to).

But it makes the setup process more time consuming and difficult.
I can imagine that some interested and willing Ubuntu users stopped here.

I think the manual (and so the number of tor relays) would benefit from a more comprehensive
and concrete content in this point.
Either by an example torrc
or by an concrete enumeration and explanation of the relevant ExitPolicies and relevant conf options.
