potential docs update needed for GuardLifetime?
The documentation for the GuardLifetime torrc option says:
If nonzero, and UseEntryGuards is set, minimum time to keep a guard before picking a new one. If zero, we use the GuardLifetime parameter from the consensus directory. No value here may be less than 1 month or greater than 5 years; out-of-range values are clamped. (Default: 0)
In commit hash 385602e9 it appears that there was a behavior change which allows guard lifetimes of 1 day or greater (grep for
get_options()->GuardLifetime >= 86400).
git blame indicated the docs for the
GuardLifetime option haven't been touched in 6-7 years, so I think they need an update after this change.
Is the expected behavior that setting
UseEntryGuards 1 and
GuardLifetime 1 day will result in guards being used for no longer than one day?
