Sorry, didn't notice you edited your post.

Can we talk to the Electrum-NMC developer about whether the auxpow thing is a good avenue? If Electrum meets the use case, then I think it makes sense to focus on that. (I can try to find him on IRC.) No problems on my part with anything else, assuming that the file signing was ACKed by Daniel.

That will take too long for impatient me. It's only 0.1BTC. I'll pay it myself if you have a problem with it. Also see below.

As it's both Python he should be able to reuse the code.

ACK from me, I like the proposal and "extra file less" signatures.

As there were no more objections I went ahead and merged the link.

Somebody solve the AuxPOW puzzle! Everything can be done withing a single prepared Python file and I think it is an interesting puzzle. It will help securish API server calls, SPV clients and the Electrum port all together!

Hi, I'm yogi from bitcointalk. I was told to join this forum if I wanted to take on the namecoin bounties. How should I go about this? Should I just pick one and then PM/post a request to take it on?

Yes. :D Also it would be nice if you could elaborate your plan of implementation up front.

Now double the bounty for the auxPOW puzzle: 0.2BTC!

If somebody thinks 0.2 BTC is too much for the job you may be right. But this helps the SPV client, the electrum implementation and the semi safe API server so I would like to have it done.
