>> Dear Relay Operators,
>> Do you want your relay to be a Tor fallback directory mirror?
>> Will it have the same address and port for the next 2 years?
>> Just reply to this email with your relay's fingerprint.
>> If your relay is on the current list, you don't need to do anything.
>> If you're asking:
>> Q: What's a fallback directory mirror?
>> Fallback directory mirrors help Tor clients connect to the network.
>> For more details, see .
>> Q: Is my relay on the current list?
>> Search  and  for your relay fingerprint or IP address and port.
>>  is the current list of fallbacks in Tor.
>>  is used to create the next list of fallbacks.
>> Q: What do I need to do if my relay is on the list?
>> Keep the same IP address, keys, and ports.
>> Email tor-relays if the relay's details change.
>> Q: Can my relay be on the list next time?
>> We need fast relays that will be on the same IP address and port for 2
>> years. Reply to this email to get on the list, or to update the details
>> of your relay.
>> Once or twice a year, we run a script to choose about 150-200 relays
>> from the potential list  for the list in Tor .
>> Q: Why didn't my relay get on the list last time?
>> We check a relay's uptime, flags, and speed . Sometimes, a relay might
>> be down when we check. That's ok, we will check it again next time.
>> It's good to have some new relays on the list every release. That helps
>> tor clients, because blocking a changing list is harder.
>> Q: What about the current relay DDoS?
>> We don't think the DDoS will have much impact on the fallback list.
>> If your relay is affected, please:
>> * make sure it has enough available file descriptors, and
>> * set MaxMemInQueues to the amount of RAM you have available per tor
>> instance (or maybe a few hundred MB less).
>> We're also working on some code changes. See  for more details.
