 Updating the summary and component to reflect what this ticket is really

 However, I’m not convinced that we should create an archive of Onionoo
 responses. We already keep an archive of the underlying data, which is
 signed by the relays or directory authorities producing it. The suggested
 new archive would be mostly redundant, and in some cases it would even be
 worse: it would start whenever we start fetching Onionoo responses, and it
 would lack data whenever either Onionoo or the archiver (temporarily)
 breaks. We should instead work on including more history in Onionoo
 documents. If others want to create an archive of Onionoo responses,
 that‘s fine, but this is not something that we should be doing officially.

 Closing. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.
