#15941 accepted task

Form a plan for killing off client versions which assume they'll live forever

Description

From at least 0.2.4 to 0.2.6, tor client versions assume that they will keep on using the network forever. They have no "request to stop" code or other mechanisms that prevent them becoming a drain on the network.

It would help to plan their transition out at some point, so we can work out what to do to make version obsolescence in future.

See #15233 for killing off 0.2.2 and 0.2.3

These two tickets (#15940 and #15941) are design-only, and should get solved when we finalize the associated design proposals (264 and 266).

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Per our triage process, these tickets are pending removal from 0.3.4.

These tickets, tagged with 034-removed-*, are no longer in-scope for 0.3.4. We can reconsider any of them, if time permits.
