such as...
     <ul>
       <li>Construct a full three-hop circuit that can make GET requests and 
DNS lookups. If done right this might allow simple usage of the Tor network 
without even having Tor installed!</li>
       <li>Expand <a 
href="https://stem.torproject.org/tutorials/mirror_mirror_on_the_wall.html#where-can-i-get-the-current-descriptors";>descriptor
 downloading</a> to use Tor's ORPort as an optional alternative for the 
DirPort. Following this we could adjust Tor so <a 
href="https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/19129";>Fallback 
Directories no longer require a DirPort</a>.</li>
+      <li>Download hidden service descriptors. Unlike relays, the descriptors 
for hidden services are only available over the ORPort. Once <a 
href="https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/17945";>ticket 17945</a> 
is merged v3 HS descriptor downloads will require a multi-hop circuit. This 
requires an understanding of Tor's <a 
href="https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/rend-spec-v3.txt";>hidden 
service</a> specifications, particularly the HSDir hash ring.</li>
+      <li>Authenticate our ORPort connection, checking that ORPorts we connect 
to have the right key fingerprint.</li>
       <li>Add protocol level integration test of Tor's ORPort, for instance 
exercising edge cases in circuit construction and extension.</li>
     </ul>
