<str4d> zzz, http://i2p-projekt.i2p/en/docs/tunnels/implementation#ordering vs net.i2p.router.peermanager.ProfileOrganizer?.getSubTier() - I think there is a discrepancy?
<iRelay> Title: Tunnel Implementation - I2P (at i2p-projekt.i2p)
<str4d> Docs:
<str4d> p = peer hash
<str4d> k = random key
<str4d> d = XOR(H(p+k), k)
<str4d> Code:
<str4d> d = H(p+k[4]) & 0x03
<str4d> Oh, not even that, it's:
<str4d> d = H(p+k[4])[0] & 0x03
<str4d> IIUC that uses the first two bits of the hash as the subtier identifier
<str4d> Oh wait, i'm looking at the wrong bit, sorry
<str4d> Okay, I see:
<str4d> The web docs don't appear to specify that the fast tier is split into subtiers
<str4d> That's why I was looking at the closest part
<str4d> And the peer ordering specified on the website only is relevant for middle nodes on client tunnels (vs. all nodes for expl)
