Description

Title says it all. The man page on the site [1] is missing: BridgePassword, NoPublish, RephistTrackTime, RunTesting, V3AuthUseLegacyKey

most of these are obsolete options, but according to arma RephistTrackTime isn't, and related to karsten's work. Cheers! -Damian

We're also missing V3AuthUseLegacyKey.

Isn't RephistTrackTime related to deciding which relays should get the Stable and Guard flag? I can't remember using that config option for anything stats-related. Removing myself as ticket owner. Please reassign if my memory tricked me!

RunTesting is flagged as obsolete: it doesn't do anything.

The others are now listed in a branch bug2379 in my public repo. Please review?

Branch looks good to me, though I'm still not sure from the description what RephistTrackTime is doing. Does this have a functional impact on Tor or is it just for the metrics tracking by the authorities? Is this something a user may want to change and why?

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by nickm

I *think* it only makes sense for authorities, but frankly, I am not totally sure. It's sure not something I can come up with a good reason for users to muck with. For now, I'm inclined to merge the branch as-is and let somebody else reverse-engineer the exact behavior of that option if they want the explanation to be more specific. :)

Merging bug2379. It isn't perfect, but it looks like an improvement. If we can track down a better answer for the use of RephistTrackHistory, we can put it in.
