Hi Nick, as per #15004 I'm adding the ability to parse hidden service descriptors to Stem. In general the rend-spec is delightfully clear, though there's a couple spots that could do with clarification...

  • The 'version' and 'protocol-versions' fields are defined as a version-number which isn't a thing. In practice these versions are presently integers, but I need for the spec to explicitly either say they're integers or what they can contain. This will determine if they're an int or str in Stem.
  • The 'introduction-points' contains a 'ip-address' with a field defined as a ip-address. Again, that's not a well defined type. For this one I'm curious 'is this IPv4? IPv6? Would IPv32 be cool too?'. This will determine if/how I try to validate this field.

Cheers! -Damian

version-number should be a nonnegative int.

I believe ip-address has to be ipv4, given how old this document type is.

Could somebody please patch the spec?
