Hi Nick,

| | An idea from the #tor-dev channel: it's probably time to do for the
| | hidden service protocol what we did for the directory protocol, and
| | split the specification into rend-spec-v1.txt and rend-spec.txt, and
| | edit the latter to contain all these proposals once they're a little
| | more discussed.  Doing this for directory stuff helped identify places
| | that hadn't actually gotten specified in our proposals.
| I'll write a draft rend-spec-v2.txt containing all the proposals
| including the v2 hidden service directory specification after I have
| sent you the remaining proposals for 0.2.1.x.

Finally, I wrote down a draft version of rendezvous protocol version 3.
(I figured that it would lead to less confusion to call the original
rendezvous protocol version 1, the current extensions with distributed
storage of descriptors version 2, and the one described in the new
proposals version 3.)

If you find the time, please have a look at this draft and let me know
if it's what you have expected.
