Ta-da!   ===> https://collector.torproject.org/ <===   New website!

Here's what changed compared to providing directory archive data on the
metrics website:

 - Archive tarballs are now provided in a directory structure rather
than a single directory: https://collector.torproject.org/archive/

 - Recently published descriptors can now be accessed much more easily:

 - Updated documentation of descriptor formats:

 - Please note that descriptors via rsync, both metrics-archive and
metrics-recent, will no longer be available, because everything is now
available via https.  Grace period runs until August 4, 2014.

 - Preliminary logo suggested by Jeroen and very quickly put together:
https://people.torproject.org/~karsten/volatile/collector-logo.png -- if
you're a graphic designer and want to contribute one hour of your time
to design that for real, please contact me!

Thanks to Damian, Jeroen, and Lunar for doing a first quick review
round.  Further feedback is much appreciated.

And now, it's finally time clean up the metrics website...

All the best,
