Proposal 174: Optimistic Data for Tor, relay side
To support optimistic data for web browsing, exit relays need to be able to queue up data cells that arrive right after begin cells, and then process them once the exit stream is established.
Ian wrote proposal 174 to start us off here: https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/blob/master:/doc/spec/proposals/174-optimistic-data-server.txt http://archives.seul.org/or/dev/Aug-2010/msg00001.html
Step one is to evaluate the proposal to see if it is actually what we want.
Sure would be nice to have some guesses about what the other proposals (other parts of legacy/trac#1849 (moved)) will look like, in order to know if proposal 174 does what we want. :)
Step two is to evaluate the patch that came with it, and see if it implements what we thought we wanted.
