Here is the message from the bitcoin commit when this feature has been added : Allow mining of min-difficulty blocks if 20 minutes have gone by without mining a regular-difficulty block. No...

Re: Crytical crypto bug in Linux

Re: Revocation

I assume P2SH is capable of implementing anyone-can-renew, but I'm not 100% sure on this. That would indeed be a good way to implement anyone-can-renew.

I just changed the certificate to a more valid one, but self signed (the one for srv0.eu was expired). -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 SHA1 Fingerprint=14:7D:31:8D:52:CD:43:61:32:91:F1:81:1B:C5:B9:CB:7B:25:4C:71 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBA...

Re: Repository push procedure

Github provides us an easy way to manage pull requests from people not having the right to push/merge to the repo. As a consequence, we do not need a lot of people to have a push right, while still allowing participation. I'm fine with an ok from another person knowing the code, for non controversia...
