cache network status of unknown authorities
arma: We should think about what will happen when we add new directories. directory authorities, that is. you mean anonymity attacks? Well, that too. But I meant in terms of everything working. I looked over the code, and I see that it's only an info (not a warn) to be given a network-status you don't recognize: that's good, since caches will ask authorities for "everybody!", and older ones will get authorities they won't recognize. OTOH, would it be a good idea to cache (if not use!) network-status docs from unrecognized authorities? that way directory caches don't become less useful when we add new dir authorities. yes, i guess that would be useful to cache them. tho we want to not cache too many. right. and we want to not use them (right?) and again, right. that should get fixed for 0.1.1.11-alpha if we are smart I say cap it at 16 unrecognized authority identities. is it easy to fix? dunno ok. let me check.
