last time I was told core dont want to decide about what people want to run, but some commits being closed and locked after 4 minutes about block site increase should be at least commented why they are closed and locked https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/10092
luke-jr, ...You don't have to put this BIP in next bitcoin core version. Just review it and sign binaries. People are fighting for SegWit. This would be a step further. You have to do it. Who else? BTC community only trusts you.
gmaxwell, I think you should review BIP148 only because of community interest. Okay, yes this BIP is only few weeks old, but why not? If there is a huge community interest, why not review it? Community is waiting for you to review. It's only few lines of code anyways. You don't have to put this BIP in next bitcoin core version. Just review it and sign binaries.

https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/10074 <- are the names for the p2p messages accurate? I was thinking that maybe "fraud/getfraud" may be a good name to be used for other fraud proofs for spv, like tx inclusion/exclusion
bambum: again, please take it to #bitcoin ; many of us are there as well and would answer you if you ask there
ok I got it, but you should also know that it also affects my life. I have almost my entire savings into bitcoin, its not so easy for me to get allthat money into my bank account.

well you naturally dont need to answer this question. I just hoped to get some prospectics. I think its really important for bitcoin holder to know about it and i am sure you have your own view and don´t only focus on tecnical
bambum: you can get that in #bitcoin too
well #bitcoin is just speculation and fud, I would be happy to see some core opinion
bambum: that's not a bitcoin-core-dev topic, #bitcoin please
as you say it's not an endorsement (though I have nothing against knots either) and improves general bitcoin security so anyhow
wumpus: latest tag is v0.14.0.knots20170307 and the bitcoin-knots github has a sigs repo
I've only built bitcoin privately, I haven't used gitian before. I don't want to release my private binaries.
Hello. #bitcoin-core-dev, I've made a patch for BIP 148, unfortunately I'm not a developer so building it a secure manner is a bit over my head. If anyone can fire-up their gitian, and help me verify the build it would be a great help for me.
