It looks like this notice-level entry was changed to an info-level entry
starting in Tor 0.2.7.1-alpha:

$ git show 251f6cfc
commit 251f6cfcd829d3f7b8ac7bce8477a6e14ad47a1e

    Quiet "caching debian-tor for debian-tor" notice

     return pw;
   }

So it looks like you are running an old version of Tor? You should
upgrade and the line should go away. In any case it should be harmless.

Hope that helps,
