more-info message

Messages of type more-info are PRIVATE messages sent from one feed to itself. They attach additional metadata to a user. They are used to provide address book features to SSB. Only the issuer of a more-info message can read them, so the data attached to a profile is private.

The more-info message contains all the more information about a given user. Applications when editing or updating that information send a complete final snapshot of all fields. An application should only read the last more-info message about a user and ignore any previous one (they should be treated as older versions). There is no reducing or tangles requiring a merge to make sense of the information.
