servers should support hearing "not new descriptor"
Directory authorities, when they get a descriptor that isn't new enough (more than cosmetically different) right now send back a 200 response code.
We should send some different code, so servers have a chance of knowing whether their uploaded descriptor actually "took" or was silently discarded.
So, changes as I understand them: A) Tor servers should accept 200-299 as successes, not just 200.
B) What success code, within the range 201-299, most closely resembles "I accepted it but it wasn't new enough so I didn't use it"? Is there any precedent to follow here?
C) Once step A is done, authorities can start sending back other codes.
D) Is there any way to speed up reaching step C?
E) Should we also change 400 to a range 400-499?
