#3504 closed defect (fixed)

The introducer furl should be treated as private

Launchpad Bug:


The introducer furl is a capability for subscribing to announcements and also publishing them.

Not any random party should be able to do either of these things. However, the introducer furl is configured inside tahoe.cfg which is generally not considered sensitive or secret.

Add a new configuration option that lets the introducer furl be written to a secret file and have tahoe.cfg refer to that file.

In fact, no new configuration option is required. private/introducers.yaml is already a supported thing!

So really just deprecate introducer.furl inside tahoe.cfg.
