Re: TPP provisions on domain names

I guess even with .bit we should honor copyrights. :mrgreen: I think that refers to only signee-country domains (.jp, .us, .au, etc.) because those are what countries actually control. .bit isn't under anyone's jurisdiction (or is it?) and there's no method of enforcement (or is there?). I hope not...

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.

Re: Security Implications of (Non)Reproducible Middleware Bu

Would it be worthwhile for Namecoin to maintain instructions for building Namecoin Core (which might differ from Bitcoin's instructions in a few strings)? The benefit is that it would be easier for people to copy/paste; the downside is that if Bitcoin updates their docs, we might have to manually r...

Re: Security Implications of (Non)Reproducible Middleware Bu

The Gitian documentation in the Bitcoin Core repo is reasonably complete and up-to-date. Don't use the docs from the Gitian repo, as Bitcoin's usage is a little bit different. If you have any trouble with it, please feel free to ask questions -- we have a number of people here who use Gitian (jbisc...

Re: Security Implications of (Non)Reproducible Middleware Bu

Yes, you do have to trust to some extent, but maybe one day when all open source software (including OSes) are being built reproducibly, that trust will be limited to hardware for users of open source software instead of hardware and software as we do now. Or maybe reproducible builds will all just...

Re: Porting v0.3.80 namecoin-qt "Manage Names" tab to nameco

Is there any work on-going to achieve this? I can help with building/testing/debugging and probably some juicy NMC bounty. Hi moa, Some people were wondering how much of a bounty you'd be willing to put up for this. Any chance you could specify this? Thanks. No response so far. What does "no respon...

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)?

Re: .conf RPC Authorization

Note that on Windows it is possible to read the data directory location from the registry it was changed from default during client installation. I have already tested reading this out but still need to add it to namerpc.py I never knew about that, even after using Bitcoin Core (ex. Qt) on Windows ...
