#30782 closed defect (fixed)

Cache outdated fetched descriptors on directory authorities

When tor starts fetching a descriptor due to a consensus, then replaces its consensus before the descriptor arrives, the descriptor is unrecognised.

Directory caches keep the descriptor in the old descriptor cache, but clients and authorities drop it.

But I think authorities should keep the descriptor, in case it is used in a future vote or consensus.

This is a bug on tor
