Hi George,

Thanks for your help with this!

We wrote up our high-level understanding of the current Tor guard selection
algorithm here:


This has more than our python simulation, but less than the actual Tor
implementation. For example, it is missing conditions like prioritization
by uptime, capacity, etc.


If you wouldn't mind taking a look at this and letting us know anything
that is missing/should change, that would be really helpful.
