The approved-routers file, in $DataDirectory, is read by directory authorities and contains !reject, !badexit and !invalid lines influencing their votes.

It's read by the function dirserv_load_fingerprint_file() [or/dirserv.c].

The file should be documented in the man page.

Summary: Document the approved-routers fileRestore documentation for the approved-routers file

All that needs to happen here is for the stanza about the approved-routers file that was removed in 607724c696a6e1bb10c8a955dac38f0ea947ce34 to go back in, and then for the nickname parts of that to be noted as obsolete.
