# Present:

pigeons

We waited a total of ten minutes from the scheduled start time and no one else showed up. Pigeons didn't have anything to discuss and neither did I, so I ended the meeting at that point.

Re: Issues with BDB on Archlinux

I described the issue fully, I get a ./namecoin-cli with no wallet methods, basically doing $ namecoin-cli help will list the methods available and will not show any regarding the wallet like, getnewaddress, listaccounts, signmessage , etc. why does that happen? Does this also occur with a stock Na...

Re: Google Summer of Code 2016

The org admin is responsible for a number of things as described starting on this page . You need to make the ideas page. Of course you will probably have to enlist the help of others like the mentors. This is something Namecoin is already doing. You are responsible for the process whereby students ...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Bounty Cornucopia

I suggest we double the bounty for the SPV client from 0.5BTC to 1.0BTC. Any objections? FYI, EN and Stephen from OU are currently working on this, using BitcoinJ. Interesting. what is OU? If they want to claim the bounty they should post here. It is University of Oklahoma. EN and Stephen are the s...

Re: OS X Gitian concerns

Who is this "Apple keyholder" for the Bitcoin build? I'm wondering if he can do us a favour: The document used to say it was Gavin Andresen, but it was changed to just read "Apple keyholder". I can't find it now, but I remember a PR or issue on GitHub that asked about the change and the person aski...

Re: Officially releasing Namecore

Do I understand the current status correctly that there are not Linux binaries yet? Sort of correct. There were just the binaries that were made for the OpenSSL consensus issue, but none were made since then, and Domob did a lot during that time. So new binaries should be made. We could use a tagge...

Re: Python Reproducible Builds

The main problem is that the process (for Windows at least) needs to be streamlined and fully automatable before we can even look at putting it in a Gitian descriptor to see if it builds reproducibly or if there is more work to be done. You can see the instructions in the initial comment and see ho...

Re: Security Implications of (Non)Reproducible Middleware Bu

The bigger problem is building Python reproducibly on Windows. (I'm not sure about OS X.) I don't know if you know (I didn't, until couple of weeks ago when I tried to actually use Gitian), but all (Lin, Win, OSX) builds are built on Linux. I'm sure he meant building Python reproducibly for Windows...

Re: Security Implications of (Non)Reproducible Middleware Bu

If you don't trust Python.org's checksum-ed binaries, why trust their source (and all the Python modules from authors who usually trust Python.org or Linux distro binaries)? There is a chance that people can read the source code and understand what is going on and identify possible issues. How many...
