rewrite_node_address_for_bridge() should always set IPv6 preferences, even if there is only one of ri or rs. And it should always warn about them.

This goes back to commit c213f277cde in and commit 9e9edf71f7d in

I think all it's done! Check my github branch bug24573.

The code looks sensible to me.

The next step here is that ffmancera and I need to test this using make check test-network-all

Code Structure:

This patch duplicates some code, we should get rid of the duplication when we make ri and rs read-only in node_t.


Using a relay as a bridge is a rare case, and the configured address will only be different for PTs or multi-port or multi-homed relays. I don't think we need to backport this.


The code passes make check test-network-all.


There is a space at the end of the changes file line:

router information or router status and warns about them. 

The changes file syntax for bugs is slightly different, it references the tor version that the bug was introduced in.

Please make these two changes file fixes, and flip to merge_ready.

Also, feel free to credit yourself in the changes file using "Patch by (preferred name or handle)".

I noticed you also implemented #24572 as part of this patch.
Can you update the changes file to mention that we also rewrite IPv6 addresses in rs?
And reference 24572 as another bug that we fixed?
This might need two entries in the changes file. That's ok.

(Please run "make check-changes" after editing the changes file.)

I edited the change file. Maybe we need to create another ticket for code structure and backporting changes.

All done I hope everything is okay! (For the next time I will create new commit for each review).

Yes, the updated version is fine. Let's get it merged.

Merged it this morning. Please either unparent or close the child ticket as appropriate, so we can close this?
