Hi Matt,
Sorry that you have had so much trouble with your relays being 
underutilized. I am now working to fix/refactor Tor's Bandwidth 
Authority system as a full-time project, now recently (this month) 
funded by OTF (https://opentechfund.org). You can follow the state of 
the project at:


Admittedly it's been a while since I started looking into this issue - 
one of the things we'd hoped was that the BwAuth system could be 
replaced by PeerFlow, but unfortunately it is still an open research 
problem, and so the BwAuths are here to stay for now. My first priority 
is to attack the unmeasured relays problem.

Hopefully this gives you some confidence that these issues will be 
addressed. I hope that if you do decide to suspend your relays you will 
bring them back in the future. You can also find me on IRC as aagbsn.
