Description

The manual page's description of HSAuthoritativeDir does not specify:

  • what hidden service descriptor versions such a directory will authoritate,
  • what versions of Tor produce such descriptors, or
  • what versions of Tor consume such descriptors.

It should specify all of those facts (until we're ready to stop documenting the HSAuthoritativeDir option and/or remove it from the Tor sources).

Replying to rransom:

The manual page's description of HSAuthoritativeDir does not specify:

  • what hidden service descriptor versions such a directory will authoritate,

Version 0 descriptors only.

  • what versions of Tor produce such descriptors, or
  • what versions of Tor consume such descriptors.

See the Changelog for 0.2.2.1-alpha:

    - Hidden services no longer publish version 0 descriptors, and clients
      do not request or use version 0 descriptors. However, the old hidden
      service authorities still accept and serve version 0 descriptors
      when contacted by older hidden services/clients.

That means 0.2.1.x versions and older produce and consume these descriptors.

It should specify all of those facts (until we're ready to stop documenting the HSAuthoritativeDir option and/or remove it from the Tor sources).

rransom, do you mind writing a patch? And can I re-assign this task to you? :)
