Namecoin Core softfork heights

Upstream Bitcoin recently replaced the pre-BIP9 softfork logic with hardcoded heights when the three forks (BIP34, BIP65 and BIP66) activated. Does anyone know what the correct heights are for Namecoin (both main and testnet), so I can set them while merging? (Just in case someone already has it, I'...

Re: will prove ownership, 10btc fixed price premium dot bits

I doubt anyone will pay that much (probably 10 BTC would be too high even for single-letter domains). My random guestimate is that those might be worth 10-50 NMC at best. (But of course, I can be wrong.)

Re: when I buy a .bit using namecoin, who gets the nmc ?

Technically, the coins are "locked" in your name, but there is no way to get them ever "out" again - so yes, they are burnt.

Re: Need Namecoin's correct genesishash and other info to ru

I've not checked the values, partly because I'm not 100% sure what they should be for Iguana, but all of that information should be in the code: https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-co ... params.cpp

Re: Concerns about removing BDB lock limit

Another issue occurs to me here. The BDB lock limit checks for the Namecoin transaction version. This behavior changes in the AlwaysAuxpowActive hardfork because the Namecoin transaction version is no longer required. It's unclear to me how to deal with that for the purposes of the BDB lock limit. ...

Re: Concerns about removing BDB lock limit

My concern is just that the BDB lock limit is actually a very hackish thing, especially when viewed as a limit to the block size. Thus it would be much nicer to get rid of it and, if necessary, set an explicit limit (e. g. at the value that the lock limit "articifically" enforces). But let's see wha...

Re: Concerns about removing BDB lock limit

If there are serious concerns about removing the limit, then we can of course not do it for now. However, my feeling is that it is not necessary to have it. Until you get some dependable modelling, I wouldn't really believe that the current limit is just good while the full blocksize limit is too la...

Re: #namecoin-meeting Recap/Notes

Let me just give a quick heads up on the Travis issue(s): I'm not sure what exactly Travis runs, but from my own experience (only on GNU/Linux, of course) the regression tests should "mostly" work now after fixing the BIP9-related test. The only thing that I'm aware of is that "p2p-fullblocktest.py"...

Re: NameID down?

It was, back up. Nothing to worry about, the server just failed to restart due to a misconfiguration after the hoster restarted the VPS.
