Re: Directory servers for a subset of Tor routers

I think this is possible with a little hacking of the code. If you
don't want to make you own version of tor (a bad idea to begin with)
you could run an authoritative dir server and then just block
connections to certain countries. Just make sure you configure your
server NOT to advertise that information to other directories.
