#21909 assigned enhancement

Add metadata about used geoip data

I'm analyzing the tor network by looking at (historic) onionoo details documents.

When I see that a relay changed AS over time there are multiple reasons for that:
1) onionoo updated its maxmind geoip file
2) the relay actually changed to another AS or IP range was relocated to another AS

For this reason it would be great if you could add a metadata field to the onionoo document in which you publish the geoip timestamp or hash, so we can tell (1) and (2) apart.

We discussed this ticket today and decided to add two new fields like "geoip_date“ and "as_date“ to details documents to include last-modified dates of the geoip files. (We also briefly talked about simply adding these fields to the response header, but given that a response may include details documents that were written up to 1 week ago, that approach seemed wrong.)
