Description (last modified by nickm)

According to current analysis, the mean uptime for a relay running on Windows XP is 10 hours. We should figure out what, if anything, we can do to solve that.

Nick, is it your understanding that this project includes "put in your libevent2 patch to Tor, get it building on Windows, make some packages (which probably includes releasing 0.2.3.1-alpha with it), and start receiving bug reports"? Or did you have something else in mind for this timeline?

Milestone: Deliverable-Sep2010

I have "analysis and progress on bufferevents" written down, if by "for this timeline" means "Sep 2010 deliverables". This probably means merging it and running it ourselves until it no longer breaks. At that point, if stuff's all right, we can try to get bug reports from others.

This is assuming that WSAENOBUFS (Bug #98) is the critical-path real windows problem, and it's not half-open connection limiting or something. Post-sep2010, we should put effort into tracking down the reason(s) _why_ the median lifetime of a windows server is 10 hours.

To the extent that this is doable for 0.2.3.x, it is done. The rest is a bigger project.
