Cryptic description for download GETINFO options

Reported by: atagar Owned by: nickm
Priority: Low Milestone: Tor: 0.3.2.x-final
Component: Core Tor/Tor Version:
Severity: Minor Keywords: regression, docs, spec, TorCoreTeam201705

Hi there, descriptions for the recent spec addition are pretty cryptic...

"The serialized download status for the FLAV_MICRODESC consensus for whichever bootstrap state Tor is currently in."

I expect this description only makes sense to the feature's author. What is FLAV_MICRODESC? What does this 'serialized download status' mean? Since it discusses 'bootstrap state' I'm guessing this is only relevant when tor is first starting up (showing percentages complete)?
