#20536 closed defect (fixed)

Should tor keep on retrying, even if it has reached the failure limit?

In #20499, when relays reach the download failure limit, they stop downloading consensuses.

I think this behaviour is desirable for relays that will never get a good consensus (if they are too old, for example).

But for relays that have a temporary issue, it is really unhelpful.
Perhaps tor should retry every few days no matter what?
