2. We're looking for recommendations for residents. If you know anyone who wants to immerse themselves in Bitcoin/Lightning over summer and is excited about making a real contribution to the project, please send them our way
it's 2-3 weeks of seminars followed by 2 months of project work. We're expecting the residents to make really meaningful contributions to Bitcoin Core and other Bitcoin/Lightning projects while they're here
i know specifying --prefix lets bitcoin autoconf find the "config.site" file generated by depends
Question for people more knowledgeable about depends: in depends/README.md, it says that the way to use the results of calling `make` in depends for bitcoin is to do ./configure --prefix=`pwd`/depends/x86_64-w64-mingw32, but in our gitian descriptor we seem to use it like so: CONFIG_SITE=`pwd`/depends/x86_64-w64-mingw32/share/config.site ./configure --prefix=/. Is there a difference between the two?
I was thinking it might be nice to add it as a webhook now and have it post to the #bitcoin-commits channel. That way we can test it out and see how it compares to the GitHub Service before it's EOL.

[bitcoin] practicalswift opened pull request #15215: rpc: Use the return value of GetProxy(...) in GetNetworksInfo(). Mark GetProxy(...) with [[nodiscard]]. (master...getnetworkinfo-getproxy) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/15215
and have compiler(s) compiler bitcoin into that IR, and have identical IR from them
fanquake: For the part of completing reproducible builds of bitcoin with guix, I might write up some instrucitons to do so when I sort out the current sources of non-determinism (I think qt is the culprit right now)
Alixe: this is not "talk to devs", it is "talk about development", and your question is not about development. some of us are in #bitcoin too
So I think mining hash power can't do anything because full nodes enforce consensus rules. But some people think governments or corporates can buy a lot of nodes to affect Bitcoin with having majority of full nodes. Is it possible?
[bitcoin] practicalswift opened pull request #15191: validation: Add missing cs_LastBlockFile locks in PruneAndFlush() and UnloadBlockIndex(). Add missing locking annotation for nLastBlockFile and fCheckForPruning. (master...cs_LastBlockFile) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/15191
gwillen: IANAL but i believe those copyright statements per file (and much less the year indications) are almost certainly worthless, especially when attributing to "The Bitcoin Core developers", which is not a legal entity
