Remove advertised bandwidth fraction graph data from Onionoo
How sad would people be if we removed the data that feeds the advertised bandwidth fraction graph, e.g., on:
As one can see, that graph is already broken since July 7, which was not on purpose. I know the reason why it's broken, but it's non-trivial to fix this.
But this made me wonder: can we live without that graph line? The description says: "If there were no bandwidth authorities, this fraction would be a very rough approximation of the probability of this relay to be selected by clients." But there are bandwidth authorities, and the idea behind Onionoo is to provide actual network status data, not all sorts of other data for research purposes. If we want to do research on this, we can always look at the descriptor tarballs.
We could replace this graph line with the history of the relay to be selected for the middle position. That data is already available in weights documents.
I'm asking, because providing these data is kinda painful if we also want the Onionoo cronjob to run faster. Not saying it's impossible to provide these data, but messy. I'd like to avoid the mess if this graph line isn't essential for people.
Feedback requested until a week from now, so July 17. Thanks!
