I am just imagining a create dialog with a text entry box where you can enter a seed, and then confused users not realizing they can ignore it, googling bitcoin seed and entering in some example they found online.. :P
I don't agree that any reduction of block sizes is "up for discussion" in bitcoin core development. Quite the opposite: You have already been privately censured for creating drama in the press for annoucing some absurd reduction fait accompli when you hadn't even brought the subject up with other developers.
bitcoinEnthusias: the only thing up for discussion at this time is a reduction in block sizes; take this topic to #bitcoin if you want to continue it
bitcoinEnthusias: on the protocol side, sipa has been organizing a BIP for Schnorr signatures. It hasn't officially been proposed yet, and typically an implementation would follow a proposal. https://github.com/sipa/bips/blob/bip-schnorr/bip-schnorr.mediawiki if you want to see the current state. bitcoin-dev mailing list a fine place to discuss the proposal
take a step back. I believe the history of this discussion is that luke told someone somewhere don't use wallet X (some untrusted server SPV thing) because its insecure. Then someone said something like "well obviously I'm not going to run bitcoin core on my phone so how should I solve this"?
provoostenator: it is because you don't need to know essentially anything about bitcoin.
what I don't want to deal with is the bitcoin project being responsible for a bunch of people running outdated, vulnerable tor software that's doing nothing but harm them. include some scripts for setting this up in contrib/ if people really want it. I certainly do not.
wumpus: I tend to agree that remote control is a more generic internet problem that can be solved outside of Bitcoin.
remote control over bitcoin P2P? what?
routing your traffic over a relay would make zero sense for the bitcoin protocol as all the data is public

harding: i do. I think it's because bitcoin has a lot of objects which the garbage collector cleans up every so often.
achow101: do you use worktrees with any other projects? I do, and I just checked a few and didn't find any of them broken (even ones on the same qube as my bitcoin repository). I don't know what would distinguish bitcoin from other repositories I use; the only thing I can think of is that it's the largest (size and object count) that I use with worktrees.
achow101: my git worktrees for the bitcoin repository also broke inexplicably two days ago in between my uses of them. I thought maybe something on my system broke them (I use Qubes 4 + Debian 9), e.g. some symlink was lost, but now I'm wondering if it was something else.
