Description

With the recent commit of #8435 to Tor, directory authorities will leave off the Fast flag from any non-measured relay.

I believe bwauths currently don't measure relays that don't have the Fast flag.

Bad cycle we're about to have here.

See https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/8273#comment:6 and comments below it for context. Aaron has a proposed patch.

aagbsn says this is already merged. So now it is just a matter of getting the active bwauths to upgrade.

moria1 has. Who else? :)

I heard about new upgrade instructions, did they make it anywhere? Is the upgrade process significantly different from what it used to be?

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by ln5

It shows that my bwauthority.py has been unhappy since the upgrade, see #8698.

BTW, I'm still running Tor v0.2.3.9-alpha-dev. Is that what y'all are
using too? I'm under the impression that we should use the same
Tor. Correct?

I'm on a somewhat-recent master

Would that be v0.2.4.9-alpha-dev?

And, use:
torflow: git-rw.torproject.org/torflow.git
2ce8f6d7875f3674c7d9d4fe7848b6d0bb92fa9c

pytorctl (submodule is in directory TorCtl, don't forget to update it too): git-rw.torproject.org/pytorctl.git

Who still has to upgrade, if anybody? Is there a better component for this than "Tor" ?

Turns out that tor-auth is for directory authority so make it clearer with tor-dirauth
