Yes, that's correct. You need some directory authorities in your network,
in order to generate a consensus networkstatus document, so relays and
clients can know the list of relays in your network.

Relays don't just self-organize, because then it would be too easy for
attackers to trick clients into using the wrong relays:

We have a FAQ entry that used to explain what to do, but it is on the
wiki FAQ and I believe people have scribbled over it until it's no
longer useful.

Your best bet might be to fetch chutney:
and either look at how it constructs the directory authority torrc files,
or actually *use* chutney for your experiments.
