roster's recommended tor version check seems broken, example:
Runs Recommended Tor Version For All Relays: false
but all relays run 0.2.4.27 - which is currently a 'recommended version'
Why does that family has a exit bw badge if it doesn't provide any exit
Displaying guard probability would be nice.

How about keeping it simple? "All relays run in countries with a CW
fraction < 5%" ?
you could simply use compass output.
