     Opinion?  I must have missed it in what you wrote.  Is such a relay
useful?  Yes, indeed.  Thank you for running it.

     I assume you must have also defined an ORPOrt because the output below
shows everything working correctly.

     It must be because it does appear to be working. :-)  However, you
didn't provide enough information for us to look for your relay in the

searching on your email address in case you had used the same email
address in the ContactInfo, but didn't find it.
