Description

When ed25519_master_id_public_key is not present on the system, tor issues the following log entry:

[warn] No key found in .../keys/ed25519_master_id_secret_key or
.../keys/ed25519_master_id_public_key.
[warn] Master public key was absent; inferring from public key in
signing certificate and saving to disk.

Is that such bad after all?

Well, it's not *great*. Omitting this file removes a redundancy check to make sure that your keys match up with each other.

I'll take a good patch here if somebody writes one.

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

Remove an old triaging keyword.

This is just a "lower the severity" ticket.

Move some 0.3.2 items (fewer than I had expected for now) into Unspecified.
