 We recently moved the broker to a new host for #29258. As a test
 deployment, we set up only the domain snowflake-broker.torproject.net to
 point to the new host. Since all proxies and clients are set up to access
 snowflake-broker.freehaven.net and snowflake-broker.bamsoftware.com, this
 let us test the new broker without causing a disruption in current usage.
 Unfortunately, metrics uses the torproject.net domain to get usage
 statistics, so the last few days have shown little to no use of snowflake:

 Eventually we will point all domains to the new host, and start to get
 accurate metrics. But the current metrics data since the migration is
 still on the old host. Perhaps the best way to solve this is manually by
 copying those files over to CollecTor?
