< gmaxwell> phantomcircuit: you should improve your commit messages some; e.g. https://github.com/pstratem/bitcoin/commit/17e6157c1975a4f5e0afa97d632ca0310b227158 should explain that previously if we recieved an unsolicited TX message (which we shouldn't) we'd process it anyways, even in blocks only mode.

< wumpus> #bitcoin please
< btcdrak> who maintains the Ubuntu ppa packages for bitcoin? there are issues being reported https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3t04fp/psa_please_upgrade_to_bitcoin_core_0112_to/cx33vpw?context=3
< wumpus> (or #bitcoin-wizards if it is moonmath related :-) )
< wumpus> well definitely not here, this channel is just for bitcoin core related programming work. The proper answer to your question is stil 'the mailing list'. #bitcoin-dev is fine, but IRC discussion tends to be more ephermal than mailing lists
< CodeShark> The usual procedure for BIP proposals is to discuss on mailing list first. But given that at least a few important reviewers/critics either have unsubscribed to the ML entirely or else just ignore it, should we discuss it here or in bitcoin-dev?

< gmaxwell> for me bitcoin core sync runs at around 8000tx/s (with secp256k1), even though every tx is involving a non-cachable missing record check for bip30 (in addition to all the cached stuff)... thats really quite remarkable IMO.

< gmaxwell> Well it's also a bit #bitcoin-core-dev too, in that I think it would be useful if work were done in the GUI to make mining fun, ... but probably more than that is just speculation :)
< gmaxwell> also it suggests a framework for setting minimum feerates which are independant of bitcoin's price-- though dependant on communications efficiency, which is perhaps no better. :)

< tulip> morcos: there's also stratum proxies like bfgminer and stratum-mining-proxy which present work to downstream miners, based on either an upstream work server or a Bitcoin node. the latter was meant for use with early hardware miners which supported getwork but not stratum.
< gmaxwell> (Forrestv seems to have flamed out due to a mixture of bitcoin drama, and then donations to support p2pool being relatively low (compared to life changing amounts of income centeralized pool operators were getting), and then he got ripped off ... twice, I think, by mining hardware makers.)
< gmaxwell> Also through this time the developer burned out on Bitcoin, and only does life support maintaince on p2pool now.
< gmaxwell> P2pool is nice idea with cute features, but has always struggled with the high startup cost of having to run a bitcoin node with it; and then high latency asics showed up (in particular, some of the early BFL products had 10%+ hashrate loss from 10 second retasking)
< gmaxwell> morcos: well it's armored by bitcoin nodes in and out; not that there haven't been problems.
< gmaxwell> Yes. It is. I tried to do it for bitcoin core eons ago, but the utility library was GPLed... they since changed the licensing.

< CodeShark> if I whitelist a node, other than network/transport issues or misbehaving, is there ever any conceivable situation where the node could get disconnected by bitcoin core
< dcousens> sorry, will go to bitcoin-dev

< wumpus> yes, was about to mention that, there is also overlap with the documentation on bitcoin.org (att least the bitcoin core section)
< jonasschnelli> harding: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/6987 could also be something for bitcoin.org?

< Luke-Jr> as long as sipa hates 1024 KB, and I prefer 1024 KB, there's no way to satisfy both without an option. If you all decide to make it 1000-based only, I can just add an option to Bitcoin LJR if I ever care enough (unlikely)

< sipa> Bitcoin Core will implement any uncontroversial hard fork.
< wumpus> but for bitcoin core which is a high-level application there shoulod be no reason to not just use SI units
< sipa> bitcoin traditionally uses 1000-based units (feerate is per 1000 bytes, block limit is 1000000 bytes), but I can't say I've payed much attention to it myself
