 Onionoo takes a couple of hours to show new relays in the consensus. The
 #tor channel often sees operators asking if they've set up their relay
 correctly. If they haven't, and they never submit a relay descriptor or
 get included in a consensus, then Relay Search isn't very helpful to them
 at all.

 We can create a service like the automated SSL testers that will connect
 to an operator's relay, ensure that it is reachable, and then perform a
 few additional checks:

 * Get the relay's descriptor from the relay
 * If IPv6 is advertised, check it is reachable
 * Warn if the contact line is not set
 * Warn if family is not set or include relays that are not online
