#1947 closed enhancement (fixed)

#1830 (fixed in addressed a bug in how relays running Tor through handle the bwconnrate and bwconnburst consensus params.

Now that we understand the bug better, those two consensus params should be verboten until is obsolete.

So piece one: note in dir-spec.txt about the old behavior of the broken params (apparently undocumented so far).

Piece two: come up with new names that we can use instead, and note them in dir-spec.

Piece three: teach Tor relays to read those new names instead. Should be an easy fix:
connection_or.c: (int)networkstatus_get_param(NULL, "bwconnrate",
connection_or.c: (int)networkstatus_get_param(NULL, "bwconnburst",

As for piece two, "perconnbwrate" and "perconnbwburst" seem like plausible choices. They are the same as the config option names. The overlap could either be considered a feature or a bug; I don't have strong feelings there.

I might have just pushed a bug1947 branch to my public git.
