 Hi network team. Recently we
 [https://gitweb.torproject.org/stem.git/commit/?id=670100c added a stem
 integ test for 'GETINFO status/fresh-relay-descs'] which in practice fails
 quite a bit with...

 Error generating descriptor

 This comes from tor]. I'm dropping this test from Stem. It might be useful
 for tor to provide a more explicit error message if we'd care for this to
 be a reliable and useful GETINFO option.
