Description

We should create a class of directory commands for use at dir mirrors that can be used to query for information about the current consensus without downloading the whole document.

The two commands that would be most useful are "What is the timestamp of your current consensus?", and "What is the hash of your current consensus?".

These two will be useful for defense-in-depth items like #7126.

To eliminate the need for two round-trip queries back to back, both pieces of information could be provided by a single query (which I guess we should make extendable).

The (unimplemented) consensus index feature from proposal 162 might be interesting to look at here.

This is probably a small feature if we can jot down a spec.

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Remove an old triaging keyword.
