Description (last modified by teor)

We added this advice to the man page in 0.3.2.9 0.3.2.10, but a config warning could help, too.

The logic is:

If an operator sets MyFamily, and does not set ContactInfo:

  • warn the operator that they should set ContactInfo

how about exiting with an error instead of just warning?

Exiting would be a good idea, if relays will be kicked out of the consensus when they have MyFamily but no ContactInfo.
Otherwise, it seems disproportionate.

These tickets, tagged with 034-removed-*, are no longer in-scope for 0.3.4. We can reconsider any of them, if time permits.

0.3.1 is end of life, there are no more backports.
Tagging with 031-unreached-backport instead.
