 Replying to [comment:2 karsten]:
 > Yes, this is a known (to me), but probably yet undocumented issue.
 Thanks for creating this issue! It bothered me from time to time, but not
 enough to open a ticket. ;)
 > So, making more files available in the `recent/` directory would be one
 option. But all tools downloading from that directory would then have to
 fetch even more data. I'm thinking of newly bootstrapped Onionoo instances
 for development purposes, for one example.

 Valid point.

 > Another option would be to create tarballs for the `archive/` directory
 more often. Maybe every 2 days instead of every 3 days. That would solve
 this issue, too, right? If so, and if there are no concerns, I'll change
 the cronjob to try this out for a week or so.

 That should be fine.
 (We should keep this in mind when we get around to 'java-ize' the
 archiving process.)
