man, the maximum size of a stanard txn being so long really makes smarter block trasfer a pita.
gmaxwell: how so?
because it makes the amount of data needed to recover from even a single missing transaction highly variable.
gmaxwell: yeah i keep thinking that too.. but we could put some of that intelligence in the sender
@gmaxwell @wumpus_ Hello, just wanted you check-in regarding the Alert System Retirement notice currently appearing across the tops of all pages on Bitcoin.org - is there a specific date it would be okay to remove it?
is the alert page going away? The bitcoin protocol for the alert system is being retired, but is the https://bitcoin.org/en/alerts going away?
Also, if you all are open to it, was wondering if it might be a good idea in the future, whenever there is a new release, to do an informational alert (like the current one) so people will be informed of the new version.
BlueMatt: no feedback, even though I've nagged people, and it's now conflicted.
gmaxwell: so reopen post-feature-freeze?
sure, if people want it. It makes changes over the code base due to needing to change LogPrintF, I'm not intrested in maintaining it when there has been no feedback at all, and for all I know people hate it because it violates some style principle that I don't know about or understand and would disagree with if I did. :)
codes all there, it isn't going anywhere. It's not an impressive feat of engineering or anything. :)
gmaxwell: suresure, but, yes, I like it...maybe easier to get review for that after 0.14 branch or so
or maybe feature-freeze since its just a refactor-ish
