Sponsor R:
 - Helped write a proposal draft for adding lots of hidden-service
statistics to relays.  In particular, focused on statistics to be
reported by rendezvous points and considered possible benefits and risks
of doing so.
 - Ran quick analysis of event logs produced by Torperf to give some
early answers to dgoulet's performance questions.
 - Contributed to asn's short hidden-service statistics proposal that
adds two statistics to relays acting as hidden-service directories and
rendezvous points.
 - Started turning the jointly written hidden-service proposal into a
technical report with planned publication date of January 12, 2015.

 - Continued refactoring the huge class NodeDetailsStatusUpdater to: fix
cases when "running" and "hibernating" fields in details documents were
not updated correctly; prepare supporting bulk imports better; and make
the code there more readable and extensible (#12651).
 - Merged and deployed iwakeh's patch to use an embedded web
server/servlet engine (13089).
 - Rebased and deployed a patch from October to support base64-encoded
fingerprints in the `search` parameter (#13135).
 - Wrote and deployed two patches to remove the advertised bandwidth
fraction field from relay details documents (#13673) and to remove
advertised bandwidth and advertised bandwidth fraction graphs from
weights documents (#13674).

 - Wrote small patches to remove advertised bandwidth fraction graphs
from details pages and replace them with middle probability graphs
(related to #13674).

 - Changed navigation towards having a single graph or table per web
page, and added new pages for data files.
 - Rewrote most of the website text and added a glossary of
frequently-used terms, both of which were kindly reviewed and improved
by harmony.
