#20621 closed defect (fixed)

bwauths need to explicitly request full consensuses when using tor 0.3.0 and later

Tor 0.3.0 merged #6769, which makes all tors use microdescriptors by default.

A side effect of this change was that FetchUselsssDescriptors 1 used to imply UseMicrodescriptors 0. Now it doesn't any more.

So bandwidth authorities need to set UseMicrodescriptors 0 in their torrcs, when using tor client versions 0.3.0 and later.

(Bandwidth authorities which use relays will continue to download full consensuses.)

Sounds like the bug might be that FetchUselessDescriptors doesn't make us fetch the NS consensus?

The underlying bug is #20667, the title is misleading.

Resolved by fixing #20667 so that FetchUselessDescriptors actually fetches all flavours.
