I have a tor relay, and I've changed the contact info in it (misspelled my email adress). I'm running the relay on a raspberry pi 2 using raspbian, installed through the raspian repos.

I have restarted the service and it is listed as restarted on atlas, but the old contact info is the same, but the info on my torrc is up to date.

My relay (if it is of interest) https://atlas.torproject.org/#details/CBFF7A3CB3224A8D8E4C542DDCF0DB47E85B397A

Looking at the latest descriptor, published (currently 2016-08-31 12:12:16) the contact address currently matches whats on atlas from which I assume it's already been updated.

The update should be within an hour, when you restart Tor it will republish your relays descriptor to the DirAuths and then the updated descriptor will be redistributed with the next consensus, which happens hourly. However note that Atlas can lag behind a little, it pulls its data from onionoo which can be delayed a little longer.

A quick way to see the latest descriptor is just to fetch it directly from a Directory server by making a simple GET request for /tor/server/fp/<your relay's fingerprint> to their advertised DirPort, for example I received this descriptor:

Also see SuperSluether's answers comment about upgrading Tor, 0.2.5.12 is a few stable releases old now.

It should update sometime in the next few hours.

If I may suggest, Tor 0.2.5 is very old. You should use the official Tor Repository so you can get the latest version: https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en

To clear up confusion, the Raspberry Pi 2 and newer work fine with this. It's just the older Pis that have problems. Someone should update that page.
