< wumpus> fanquake: done
< hebasto> what is going on with testnet right now?
< wumpus> I don't know? I don't run a testnet node at the moment
< instagibbs> where/does -cli expose the list of acceptable descriptors?
< wumpus> "help scantxoutset" has some examples, but the main doc is in doc/descriptors.md
< elichai2> tips on how to make 2 local nodes sync from each other? I have a machine with one fully synced full node and another not synced. it's disconnected from the internet and no matter what flags i'm trying to use I can't get them to sync
< elichai2> tried even deleting both of theirs `peers.dat` files
< sipsorcery> elichai2: do you know about, bitcoin-cli help addnode
< elichai2> ha. added more logs and now I see "Ignoring getheaders from peer=0 because node is in intial download" is there a way to tell it the current heighest block is fine enough? or I guess I need to reconnect it to the internet
< elichai2> sipsorcery: yeah :)
< instagibbs> Zooming out is there a way to tell your node to not consider itself in ibd? this also interferes with some RPC commands for offline signing..
< elichai2> instagibbs: +1 :)
< wumpus> elichai2: something I've run into many times
< wumpus> I usually ended up commenting out some statement
< elichai2> wumpus: can I make it not think I'm in IBD that way? Or I must sync the missing two months of blocks?
< instagibbs> `IsInitialBlockDownload` is the thing you'd want to mess with
< instagibbs> it has various conditions it checks for
< wumpus> inside net_processing (strCommand == NetMsgType::GETHEADERS) there's a IsInitialBlockDownload() check you'll likely want to comment out
< elichai2> I'll do that for now and add a TODO for myself to see how complicated it is to add an RPC command telling it its no longer in IBD
< wumpus> I think that's enough to get syncing working from a node that thinks it's in IBD
< wumpus> see #6971 for my long fight on this particular issue

< wumpus> (FWIW it seems it's now possible to work around it that particular one using HasPermission(PF_NOBAN) )

< fanquake> If anyone thinks that Autoconf 2.69 (2012) is too modern of a requirement for our configure, please raise your concerns in #17769.

< wumpus> 2012 is a good year
< wumpus> I think our minimum supported libc version is from then too
< sipa> hah
< fanquake> wumpus heh yes. 2.17 was tagged on christmas eve 2012
< ariard> elichai2: have a look on -maxtipage, if you set tip age older than max header on local node 1, I think it shouldn't longuer consider itself in IBD
