Can votes and consensuses have more than one "a" line? Prop 186 says, on
[...] votes should include a single "a" line for every relay that has
an IPv6 address, to include the first IPv6 line in its
descriptor. [...] The remaining or-address lines will turn into "a"
lines in the microdescriptor.
I interpret this to mean that there is at most one "a" line in a status
vote or consensus.
On the other hand it also says
Clients that use microdescriptors should consider a node's addresses
to be the address:port listed in the "r" line of a consensus, plus all
"a" lines for that node in the consensus, [...]
the vote will include whichever set of "a" lines are given by the most
authorities who voted for the descriptor digest that will be used for
(Is "vote" a typo? Should it read "consensus"?)
This makes me think there can be more than one "a" line in both votes
