Add an entry for the user's relay to the relay list right after they configure it
Migrated from old trac: "Vidalia currently just displays the relays that have the Running flag in the network status returned by getinfo ns/all. Since it takes a little while for the user's relay to be found reachable and get published in the consensus, several users lately have been asking "Why doesn't my relay show up in Vidalia's relay list right away?"
It might be less confusing for them if we just add an entry for their relay to the list right after they configure the relay. It would be marked as "Offline" until it is marked as Running in getinfo ns/all.
Adding a pointer nearby with an answer to the question "Why is my relay offline?" would also be good, since that's likely to be the follow-up question."
I'd display a warning saying "If your relay isn't listed among the others, it may be because it doesn't have a Running flag yet. -What's this?-", with the proper doc, or link to doc.
