Hi 12xBTM,

It looks like your relay's key recently changed from 00C4B4731658D3B4987132A3F77100CFCB190D97 to CFECDDCA990E3EF7B7EC958B22441386B6B8D820.

We expected some fallback churn, which is why we have 100 in the list.

Changing a fallback's key has two impacts:
* Clients on 0.2.8-alpha will expect the old key, and refuse to connect to your relay as a fallback directory,
* In 0.2.8-rc, your relay was excluded as a fallback because the key had changed.

Will you be keeping the new key for the next 2 years?
If so, I'll update the fallback list with the new key, and your relay will be considered as a fallback when we next rebuild the list.
