Hello Tobias and Rene!

> Hi Tobias and Rene,
> we noticed your new relays [1] that you run for your research project.
> For transparency reasons I'd like to encourage you to set MyFamily 
> in your torrc configuration (using fingerprints not nicknames).
> Malicious entities are exploiting misconfigured relay groups by using their ContactInfo
> and if you haven't set MyFamily properly we have a hard time telling your relays apart
> from someone else using your ContactInfo.
> To allow for automated verification of your relay's attribution to your domain 
> it would be best to make use of the IANA registered "tor-relay" well-known URI
> to publish your list of relay fingerprints:
> https://www.digidow.eu/.well-known/tor-relay/rsa-fingerprint.txt
> and you would then add this string to your ContactInfo for automated verification:
> url:www.digidow.eu proof:uri-rsa ciissversion:2
> specs:
> https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core/torspec/-/blob/master/proposals/326-tor-relay-well-known-uri-rfc8615.md 
> https://nusenu.github.io/ContactInfo-Information-Sharing-Specification/
> https://www.iana.org/assignments/well-known-uris/well-known-uris.xhtml
> for examples see:

Please keep me in the Cc list, too, in that case so the Tor Project is
in the loop, too.
