Thanks, Karsten!

Oops, I read 'contain similar documents as the relay descriptor
archives' as being server descriptors. Maybe in this first sentence it
should explicitly say that it's a bundled batch of network status,
server descriptors, and extra-info descriptors?

Oops again. Didn't figure that we'd use the same scrubbing description
for both. Personally I'd find it more intuitive if we had separate
sections for both, though I see why you did it this way.

Gotcha. Added support for the router-digest lines and flagged them as
being required for bridge server descriptors...

In that case the 'router-signature' lines are the only ones being
scrubbed out of bridge extra-info descriptors, right? If so then we
don't need a 'router-digest' here since the digest can be calculated
from the (now unscrubbed) content - right?

Cheers! -Damian
