RecommendedVersions 0.2.7.1-alpha

This is a lot of versions, and maybe we don't think they are all so great anymore.

We should probably cull this list soon, and ideally also come up with a plan to keep the list nice and short in the future. Or at least shorter.

IMO we should disrecommend at least every alpha and rc that has been superseded by a distinct release for at least N months.

Replying to weasel:

right now we're recommending (or at least I'm voting for):

RecommendedVersions 0.2.3.24-rc
RecommendedVersions 0.2.3.25

also note that there are no 0.2.3.x relays on the network since march.

(I assume dir auths removed them/no longer voted for them)

This is a lot of versions, and maybe we don't think they are all so great anymore.

So here's what I propose the list should become. It may retain some versions it should not, but I think it's better than the status quo.

RecommendedVersions 0.2.4.23
RecommendedVersions 0.2.4.24
RecommendedVersions 0.2.4.25
RecommendedVersions 0.2.4.26
RecommendedVersions 0.2.4.27

RecommendedVersions 0.2.5.8-rc
RecommendedVersions 0.2.5.9-rc
RecommendedVersions 0.2.5.10
RecommendedVersions 0.2.5.11
RecommendedVersions 0.2.5.12

RecommendedVersions 0.2.6.5-rc
RecommendedVersions 0.2.6.6
RecommendedVersions 0.2.6.7

RecommendedVersions 0.2.7.1-alpha
