Re: Answer by perfect-privacy.com Re: perfect-privacy.com, Family specifications, etc.

Though I appreciate Jim's signature proposal, that could become difficult and convoluted to implement quite quickly. I think that perfectprivacy's initial suggestion was actually quite compelling: allow ``#include'' type statements to be used in a torrc.

Currently, an operator of multiple relays has to edit the actual torrc of all the relays, which is probably quite fiddly, because they are all slightly different. With includes, the operator would only have to edit the ``master family'' file, and upload that to the relevant directory on all their nodes, a much simpler process. Moreover, includes are much easier to code than any sort of key verification system.

It seems like includes are a relatively simple solution to a relatively simple problem.
