Comment(by karsten):

 Replying to [ticket:3830 arma]:
 > moria's torperf is running I assume the other torperfs
 are similarly outdated.
 > Is there any reason to stick with that version, or should we upgrade

 Hmm? is still recommended for clients (and for servers),
 so why would we want to upgrade?

 Are there performance changes between and  If so,
 we should upgrade and leave a note that we upgraded, or we'll later wonder
 why torperf results changed.

 If you think we should upgrade, I'll do so on moria and ferrinii and will
 ask Linus to do so on siv.

 > Should we consider some sort of automated upgrade plan, so we don't get
 into this position again later?

 An automatic upgrade would be bad, because tor's performance could change
 and we'd never know why that happened.  But having some kind of
 notification that the tor version is not recommended anymore would be
 good.  Not sure how to implement that easily though.
