Re: introductions

For C, you might look at forking picocoin or cbitcoin and adding Namecoin support. Though I don't know if there is a good reason to port those. There are also C# Bitcoin projects that could potentially be ported, but again, I don't know if there is a good reason to do so. But Jeremy is right about t...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Bounty Cornucopia

I merged in Armory's master branch into my namecoin-core branch. I also updated the URLs to point to namecoin.org. I also removed the report bug button in our fork of Armory so that people don't report bugs with our fork to the upstream Armory team. https://github.com/josephbisch/BitcoinArmory/tree...

Re: [NMDF] Namecoin Bounty Cornucopia

Regarding the 0.5 BTC bounty for finishing the Armory port, can we flesh out specifically which tasks are eligible? Right now there are 5 tickets open on GitHub: https://github.com/namecoin/BitcoinArmory/issues I'm leaning towards 0.2 BTC for https://github.com/namecoin/BitcoinArmory/issues/2 , 0.2...

Re: Getting a few students to work on Namecoin

Maybe just explicitly state that you don't need to know all the languages. Even knowing one can help. I know you sort of said it, but it might help to outright say it.

Re: Getting a few students to work on Namecoin

And don't assume that people know anything about Namecoin or blockchain technology or any of this. Give as much detail as the email allows you to (but strike a balance between too little and too much detail).

Re: Getting a few students to work on Namecoin

As far as the list of skills, from a programming language perspective, I see Java (anything BitcoinJ based or Android related), web technologies (block explorer or web-based registrar), C++ (Armory lower-level stuff like name transactions or Namecoin Core), Go (someone, maybe hl, does stuff with go,...

Re: Python Reproducible Builds?

By the way, "slot error" sounds Qt-specific, since I don't know of any Python language feature that is called "slots". I don't fully grok the details of how you're freezing the Python libs, but is it possible that's a Qt issue rather than a Python or OpenSSL issue? (I assume you already looked into...

Re: Python Reproducible Builds?

Okay, cool -- thanks for the detailed explanation. I think we're going to switch to Python3 sometime soon (unless something comes up unexpectedly), so that should be fine. I actually don't think NMControl uses the Python ssl module (I think we're using PyOpenSSL for such things instead). If I'm cor...

Re: Suggestion: Switch to Slack, Gitter, or OSS equivalent

There is also sandstorm , which is a platform for deploying webapps easily and they have a bunch of apps (including chat and collaboration apps) that can be deployed with one click once the initial sandstorm setup on the server is done. Unfortunately it seems like we would have to set it up on our o...
