vanishing HSDIR flags

     Yesterday (Friday) the number of relays given HSDir flags by the
directory authorities was reduced by a bit more than 50% from only a
day earlier.  My node, MYCROFTsOtherChild, was and still is among the
bereft.  This same situation happened a couple of weeks ago, also
affecting my node.  That time the flag reappeared several hours after
I first noticed what had happened.  This time the flag is still missing.
     It is not obvious to me why the HSDir flag has been stripped from
so many relays, especially relays that have, like mine, been up and
running for weeks since the last restart.  Has a bug been triggered in
the authority code?
