We're deprecating 0.2.3.x, and sooner or later it will be time to stop accepting relays running 0.2.3 on the network.

Before we do this, we should contact as many operators running 0.2.3 as possible, and urge them to upgrade

0.2.6 is near so we agree by now that contacting the relay ops that the version 0.2.3.x will be disabled in a week or two should be done very soon!

Damian has offered to email the people still running 0.2.3.x as relays. I have promised not to kick those relays off the consensus until 7 days after Damian's email goes out.

Can we also email the people running a version before There are only a handful, and I propose to make our cutoff.

Damian has launched the process. I'm assuming he'll finish today, and I can merge a patch for this on Feb 11.

branch "feature_13555" is the branch to merge in a week. Somebody should have a look at it, I guess: it's got one line of actual code changed.

Notices sent to 83 relays that had valid looking contact information. 11 bounces received so far and one relay ops has already replied.
