argh ffs...can we all agree to not use github's fancy new review mode thing? it seems to be breaking github's emails as they are no longer threaded together for a single issue...hopefully they can fix in a day or two but they really broke my bitcoin-email workflow :(
would it be unreasonable for us to keep a bitcoin-core keyring file that has the pgp keys of all the regulars around here in it?
[bitcoin] paveljanik opened pull request #8737: Trivial: UndoReadFromDisk works on undo files (rev), not on block files. (master...20160915_Undo_error_message_fix) https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/8737
wumpus: lots of work remains. But, mingw depends build fully, and bitcoin build breaks with the same threading problems that have been reported, so it's enough to help with testing/debugging.
if it's granular enough, then no one should need to add adhoc debug message as you are suggesting... there'd be a debug message already there that they can activate just by editing bitcoin.conf
if I became really obsessed about this, and wanted this a default part of bitcoin, and became angry if other developers disagreed, that would be an ego commit
wumpus, i just spend 3 days having to rebase all these debug commits due to changes that were made recently.. I am getting very very fed up with the amount of time wasted rebasing when I could be spending that time adding functionality to bitcoin. this is why this needs to get merged!
I've found it much easier to just always use a well-tested rpc library than use something "bitcoin tailored"
the standard python bitcoin json library that people get linked to is not at all reliable (gets disconnected and then throws exceptions, and has to be wrapped to be usable) and I don't see anyone even complaining about it.
bitcoin-cli*, that is
no interpreters in bitcoin please
I mean with bitcoin-cli you have full access to bash' scripting/variable munging/etc capabilities, in the Qt console you don't, so this adds a bit of shell power to it
I think its better to start with it client-side QT only, and if it turns to be useful, add it to bitcoin-cli.
A better approach for the RPC layer would be to add it into bitcoin-cli
