Re: Setup Directory Server

He wants to create an authoritative directory service, like the ones
that already exist and run it on the big bad internet. I think this is
good and will help decentralize trust. Just edit the torcc comrade.

There are no special sources or binaries for directory servers. You can
use the same sources/binaries as for an onion proxy or onion router. The
only thing you need to change is the configuration in torrc.
Additionaly, you need to change the configurations of all clients to
contact your directory instead of the public directories using
DirServer. I think to remember that you need at least two directories to
run a Tor network. If you are unsure which configuration options that
are, look into the man page or let PuppeTor create an example
configuration that you can change afterwards.
