This document is an attempt to make sense of the exit list format that
TorDNSEL publishes without the original TorDNSEL author being around.
TorDNSEL publishes its exit test results in a single document with entries
using the following format. The document consists of an arbitrary number
of entries each consisting of four or more lines: (ExitNode | Published |
LastStatus | ExitAddress*)*. In the format below, keywords are written in
double quotes and spaces and newlines are explicitly marked as SP and NL:
"ExitNode" SP fingerprint NL
The identity of the relay in upper-case hex characters. This
fingerprint corresponds to the fingerprint in v2 and v3 network status
documents as specified in /doc/spec/dir-spec.txt in the Tor sources.
"Published" SP YYYY-MM-DD SP HH:MM:SS NL
The publication time, in UTC, of the most recent relay descriptor that
was known when the test was initiated. No further test is initiated
until the relay publishes a new descriptor.
"LastStatus" SP YYYY-MM-DD SP HH:MM:SS NL
The last time, in UTC, when the relay was seen in a v2 network status
document. A relay is discarded from the list if it was not seen in a
network status for at least 48 hours.
"ExitAddress" SP address SP YYYY-MM-DD SP HH:MM:SS NL
One or more test results for this relay consisting of the found exit
address and the time, in UTC, when the test was performed. A test is
discarded from the list if it is older than 48 hours.
