Description

The "Signatures" (misnamed?) section on Consensus Health currently links to the consensus, microdesc consensus, and vote for each authority.

Should it also link to the following URLs?
http://<hostname>/tor/server/all (relay descriptors)
http://<hostname>/tor/keys/all (authority keys - probably not useful)
http://<hostname>/tor/extra/all (relay extrainfos - probably not useful)

I thought that we also had a Tor ticket for an all microdescs URL, but I can't find it. I guess that feature hasn't been implemented yet.

Even better... maybe Consensus Health could cache these?

Oh wait, sorry, I thought this was for the /authority links. If it's not already fetching these as part of running then it shouldn't fetch them just to cache them.

Replying to irl:

It's really useful to have a link to "what the authority has right now".
If I want to know what it had in the past, I use CollecTor.

(I don't think we need similar links on Relay Search - I rarely want to know which consensuses and descriptors a mirror has.)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
