nothing will change for German tor operators due to this law. It defines
how to store and how to hand over stored data to the authorities. Data
not collected at all can't be stored, right?. But this law does not
enforce tor operators to collect any data.

If the tor application would offer connection logging, and if a German
tor operator would activate it, then this tor operator will have to
store this data for six months. Please read §113 the first sentence of
this fucking law.
