[tor-dev] Chutney Default: DNS or Offline?

Dear chutney users,

Do you use DNS with chutney?
(Chutney uses IP addresses by default.)

Chutney has never worked offline, because Tor Exits check DNS before
publishing their exit policy. And if DNS fails while a test is being
run, chutney fails. (See Tor bug #21900.)

We can make chutney work offline by disabling DNS.
See the chutney bug at:

But we need to decide what the default is:

Do you want chutney to work offline by default?
Or do you want chutney to have working DNS by default?
