ConnDirectionStatistics is off by default, but most relays report it
Karsten noticed that most relays report ConnDirectionStatistics, but it's off by default in tor: https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-dev/2020-February/014159.html https://2019.www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en
That's a bit of a mystery, here are some possible causes:
- most large distributions set it on by default
- Debian + Ubuntu + ... ?
- sample torrcs?
- there is a bug in most tor relays, that sets it on by default
- since at least 0.2.9?
We don't have to fix this bug in Sponsor 55, but we need to be aware of it, because we're going to modify the ConnDirectionStatistics code.
