"the bitcoin core code signing association thinks Windows should not yell when running this binary"
"this is bitcoin core" *should* be meaningless really
It only tells users it was signed by an organisation called "Bitcoin Core Code Signing Association"
or "this is bitcoin core"
jonasschnelli: obviously there would have to be some reasonable policy on what gets signed (eg, gitian builds of Bitcoin-compatible software)
There is another association I'm currently building up (with a proper structure) called "Bitcoin Developer and Researcher Association" (BitDRA) which should aim to finance real work/projects
yes I am happy to formally donate to the Bitcoin Core Code Signing Association, someone should tell me an amount and where to mail a check :-)
Bitcoin Core Code Signing Association (based in Switzerland)
oh I missed the win signature discussion, will it be something other than Bitcoin Foundation in the future?
surprisingly much of the infrastructure and stuff around bitcoin is hanging together by a few threads, and single individuals that happily still care about it
thanks to the Linux Foundation too, then! it wouldn't be crazy for them to drop bitcoin-dev if it's such a hot potato
It's worth noting despite trying to deprecate the old mailman2 server they've tried to keep it online for us and a few other dev communities who had a hard time moving, and most of their downtime trouble was due to DoS attacks targeting only bitcoin-dev.
in principle it's even off topic in the bitcoin core meeting, the bitcoin-dev mailing list is outside it's scope, not that I mind
so apparently there's some funding initiative by Twitter/Square for core devs (I only learn of this through twitter now), https://twitter.com/jimmysong/status/1108500506106843137 - anyhow, if you're actively involved in Bitcoin Core's development and need this funding, and would like me to write a recommendation for you, let me know
nothingmuch: basically, instead of having an actual IP, you have (0xFD + sha256("bitcoin")[0:5] + sha256(hostname))[0:16], which is useful in cases where you don't actually care about the IP, but the hostname, e.g. for seeds
i used bitcoin-cli listbanned to determine i have 474 banned, all of which are manually added. greg's list has 670. so i am wondering why my ban list is less (likely due to error aborting prematurely?). i am also still wondering about the "already banned" error message since i have none in the ban list that are shown as automatic.
peers of this type pretend to be running various versions of Bitcoin software, but are not. they respond with compact blocks handshakes, pings and pongs, but never respond to headers, get blocks, or inventory messages. the addr messages they push are stuffed with like-peers, and in general seem to be over represented in outgoing connections of normal nodes.
I apologize for not participating in gitian for a while. debootstrap has not worked on Fedora for a few years now. I'm hoping people can help https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/15277 so we have a deterministic buildsystem to replace gitian.
As part of testing RC1, I was using the new bitcoin-wallet with its "info" command to inspect some backups, but I noticed that it changes the file write times (and won't work if I run on a read-only wallet file). Does it actually need write access to print basic wallet info? I'd really prefer inspections be read only (and work with read-only files).

"Cannot send to nick/channel: #bitcoin"
hello, I have a question regarding pruned mode and importprivkey. I have just imported hundreds of privkeys from my electrum wallet to bitcoin gold core pruned wallet but I can't see any addresses or balances. I can't seem to be able to do rescan on pruned mode. Is there a way to see my balance or move ALL the coins to a new address?
I appologise for posting it here but I can't do it #bitcoin for some reason :/
"I think his desire is to allow people to immediately start using LND and the LN wallet using BIP157 filters served from his node while their Bitcoin Core node syncs."
So then I guess the confusion there would be that what he'd really want as the alternative is 'hybrid spv mode' in the ln wallet? not in bitcoin core.
only partially related, i think there is a lot of confusion about what "bip157" means; there is (a) the spec, allowing software to implement the filters in a private protocol like wasabi does (b) support for it in bitcoin core via RPC (what the current PRs do) (c) exposing it in core and other software via P2P for trusting peers to use (d) exposing it in core via P2P for non-trusting peers (e) a
My understanding is that pierre_rochard is focused on onboarding new Bitcoin users via Lightning (with his Lightning Powered Users), and he would like as many of them as possible to run full nodes, but he wants them to be able to use Bitcoin immediately so wants to support BIP157 style light clients. He's also saying if Core doesn't merge support for BIP157, he'd maintain a version of Core with it merged, and run
gmaxwell: pierre_rochard maintains an installer that installs Bitcoin Core, LND, and a LN wallet that's capable of using BIP157/158. I think his desire is to allow people to immediately start using LND and the LN wallet using BIP157 filters served from his node while their Bitcoin Core node syncs. That is, I don't think he's talking about hybrid SPV in Bitcoin Core by hybrid SPV via LND/Neutrino/some other wallet.
(someone in #bitcoin tried asking me my opinion about that debate earlier, and I thought it would be nice to actually understand it before responding...)

One more question please: After I added the rpcauth=... line into the config file (bitcoin.conf) how to need activate/accept, I mean maybe need to reload some service(s) or something like that? (I want to use the PHP wrapper to manage bitcoind over RPC)
