Separate the various roles that directory authorities play, from a configuration POV
It would be handy if the following roles were split up:
- The list of IP:Orport:Identity to which every relay should upload every descriptor.
- The list of IP:Orport:Identity from which caches should expect to find canonical consensuses and descriptors.
- The list of IP:Orport:Identity from which non-caches should expect to bootstrap consensuses and descriptors. (See 'fallbackdir')
- The list of keys that must sign a vote or a consensus.
- The list of IP:Orport:Identity that authorities use when sending and receiving votes.
Splitting roles up in this way would better prepare us for an implementation of prop#257 down the road.
To upload designs, you'll need to enable LFS and have an admin enable hashed storage. More information
