Comment (by karsten):

 Good idea!  New first two paragraphs:

 "Welcome to CollecTor, your friendly data-collecting service in the Tor
 network. CollecTor fetches data from various nodes and services in the
 public Tor network and makes it available to the world. This data includes
 relay descriptors from the directory authorities, sanitized bridge
 descriptors from the bridge authority, and other data about the Tor

 This document describes how to set up your very own CollecTor instance. It
 was written with an audience in mind that has at least some experience
 with running services and is comfortable with the command line. It’s not
 required that you know how to read or even write Java code, though."

 Should I go ahead and create a branch for this, so that we can fine-tune
 the text?  Or would you rather provide more feedback based on the PDF?
