Thanks for writing this introduction!
And thanks for working on improving CollecTor! I'm very excited that
this project has now started. CollecTor is so important for the
various Metrics-related services including Onionoo and ExoneraTor, and
many people depend on CollecTor, knowingly or not. Very soon,
CollecTor (together with its predecessor tool, written by weasel) will
have collected 12 years of Tor network data:
So, again, thanks for picking up this very important task. I'm very
much looking forward to discussing improvements and reviewing and
merging changes coming out of this project.
