I'm going to push this out to June, because I want to use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as one of the platforms to make scripts for, and I think 12.04 probably could benefit from another month or so of bugfixing before I jump right on that wagon.

A draft of this is up at
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorRelaySecurity.

It still needs a bit of work, and I still need to finish the scripts.

Did some more work on this. There appears to be a crash bug that happens after a couple weeks if you remove node keys during runtime. Possibly due to onion key rotation. Unfortunately, no loglines are emitted when this happens, so it's proving a little tricky to track down.

It seems like the crash bug was due to a missing libgcc.
