Description (last modified by mikeperry)

I have a few things I want to do to the flag-weight equations. This ticket will eventually be the parent ticket, but for now it's just a brain-dump:

  1. I definitely want to correct the balancing issues discussed in #8240.
  2. I might want to account for changes due to directory guards (#7757).
  3. I might want to factor in an optional Guard/Middle padding parameter. (#7028)
  4. I might want to factor in an estimate of hidden service traffic somehow.

Also, #8356 might involve the same sort of data. Might be worth looking at along the way.

At the very least, I need to get at least get a proposal for this out in November, so we can consider it in combination with #16861.

Bulk-move uncompleted items to december. :/

I'd look at a patch for these if we got one, but AFAIK nobody's looking at them right now, and there's no reason to expect them to get done this month.

It is impossible that we will fix all 226 currently open 028 tickets before 028 releases. Time to move some out. This is my second pass through the "new" and tickets, looking for things to move to 0.2.9.

Deferring more things -- even ones I love -- to 0.3.0. Please argue if I'm wrong.

0.3.1 feature freeze today: these don't seem like they will be all sorted out in time. Let's try to make progress in 0.3.2.
