gmaxwell: my thinking was that you don't need to add all those to your automatic startup or have to run anything extra and bitcoin core can set it up for you
Hey, so I am making a PR to add an option to give the user the ability to have commands run after Bitcoin Core is finished starting up, the idea is so someone could have things like lnd or electrum-personal-server automatically run when Bitcoin Core starts. Is this something desirable to add or could it be too unsafe?
If we really wanted a blog post ... maybe instead we should have a blog post about bitcoin wallet security best practices, and this port thing could be mentioned somewhere in it. that would make sense. But alerting on this? I don't think so.
I tend to agree with harding though "I'm a fan of updating the documentation in the Bitcoin Core docs/ directory and putting something into the release notes instead of publishing a long blog post that basically says that using a computer not under your exclusive control is unsafe"
bitcoin/master d0522ec Ben Woosley: Drop defunct Windows compat fixes
I'm talking to distro maintainers about #12255, when checking if a directory is a valid bitcoin directory, would checking `[ -f foo/bar/peers.dat ]` be sufficient? Would it be better to check `[ -f foo/bar/.lock ]`?
