you can include the following two relays for sure, as they are
guaranteed to not change their ip / port:

- 1E01B887F7FB61BEFC34FA8D9EA98E4268A8275F (rofltor02)
- 41A3C16269C7B63DB6EB741DBDDB4E1F586B1592 (rofltor03)

Currently rofltor03 has a traffic cap. I can change it to a long
running and bandwidth (instead of traffic) capped relay tho, if that
is wanted.

The following relays can keep their ip / port, if you want to include them:

- 8101421BEFCCF4C271D5483C5AABCAAD245BBB9D (rofltor01)
- F741E5124CB12700DA946B78C9B2DD175D6CD2A1 (rofltor06)
- 15BE17C99FACE24470D40AF782D6A9C692AB36D6 (rofltor07)
- 90A5D1355C4B5840E950EB61E673863A6AE3ACA1 (rofltor09)
- 3CB4193EF4E239FCEDC4DC43468E0B0D6B67ACC3 (rofltor10)

Best regards,
