is libconsensus work still underway in an active enough fashion to warrant a project in https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/projects? I haven't heard of it in quite a while. It may have been because of sidetracking due to segwit ofcourse.
hi bitcoin core devs. I am at a conference where a talk later today called 'exploiting trust in deterministic builds' is going to be presented. Since you use reproducible builds maybe it is of interest. paper should be available via springer
fwiw, I found more bandwidth was being used by bitcoinj clients than ibding bitcoin core.
hm. that allow edits thing defaults to on, so next time someone PRs their whole altcoin to our repo we could go and replace their code with bitcoin? :P "we upgraded your altcoin, enjoy!"
completely off-topic, but Pidgin sucks for IRC • I used to have a decent client when I still used Linux, but I've only started using IRC for Bitcoin again recently. Any recommendation for a decent IRC client?
gmaxwell: Here is a question. For a very long time I thought that spending several outputs from the same address required only one signature. I recently saw an answer on Bitcoin.SE that said that spending transactions from the same address still uses a full signature each. Is the only concern privacy then?
this channel is for near-term bitcoin core development, your question is about an implementation of elements sidechain and/or future quantum advances
xinxi: maybe #bitcoin-wizards ?
gmaxwell: Did you have something in particular in mind to try? We (sipa, you, instagibbs, me) did discuss this a few months ago already though. And I've also read your Bitcoin Wiki page on Coin Selection. :)
sipa: E.g. Bitcoin Core uses an initial guess of the fee to restrict solutions in the selection pass through. It will only update the fee guess after the selection attempt if it didn't produce a satisfying result.
murch: hmmm, i cant say i recall exactly what the behavior there is...its also very much based on what bitcoin core did at the time (and its non-fee anti-spam measures)
gmaxwell: I was planning to provide it around Scaling Bitcoin. There was a few more things I wanted to do before publishing it. Trying other strategies is a case of inheritance and overriding a single function though.
BlueMatt: you mean making the final utxo set 126 times larger than bitcoin core isn't good?
you can disable it by setting listenonion=0 in bitcoin.conf
