#1310 closed defect (fixed)

Suggestion: Adding an explanation on dir-spec

Description

Hello,

I asked a question on #tor and Sebastian_ gave a good explanation to reply it. I suggest that someone should put this
explanation on dir-spec. All of them below;

Q: In dir-spec @1801 it says: "Finally the authority MAY check that the router is not blacklisted beacuse of it's key,
IP or another reason". Why is there MAY word? Is it possible that a router desc. pass this step without be verified
whether it's on blaclisted or not?

A: that means that depending on the Tor implementation and the configuration of the directory authority, it may or may
not blacklist relays. The specification does not require it to keep such a blacklist.

Thanks in advance.
