Is the HSDir flag the same as V2Dir, or something different? You correctly identified my relay. I see it is a V2Dir but do not know how to determine if it is a HSDir.

I'm just a curious user, this is not part of a formal research project.  Is there a public tor testnet that I could have joined my node to for this sort of experimentation (I don't have the resources to build my own)? I can understand why you don't want production nodes logging data that could potentially cause harm to other network users, but also do not think curious users should be discouraged from poking around in the code.
