[ Co-Chairs: mod6 [R.01] && ben_vulpes [R.02] ]
It is with great honor and privilege that The Bitcoin Foundation embraces
this opportunity to address the public on the state of current progress,
obstacles and continuing steps in our mission.
0x010: The Foundation now has a toll-free [US Only] number that is available
for questions.  833 TMSR BTC
hanbot [R.03] is taking on a role at The Bitcoin Foundation, she will
be working on outreach to the public; something sorely missing in the
nicoleci [R.04], is also going to be helping out the Foundation by
answering the Toll Free Number [above], and passing whatever notes or
questions arise, along to the proper individuals.
0x011: mod6's node again was corrupted, and was down for a few weeks during
the month. It has been restored [R.05] an added to the list of
Advertised Republican Nodes [R.06].
0x012: pete_dushenski's [R.07] nodes were found to be dead, and thus removed
from the list of Advertised Republican Nodes [R.08] [R.06].
0x013: asciilifeform [R.09] published a vpatch that logs what IP address sent
a block [R.0A]. mod6 is currently testing this vpatch.
0x014: asciilifeform also published another experimental vpatch [R.0B] called
``makesnap''. The vpatch produces a file containing on each line:
the block height in the main chain, followed by its hash.
0x015: jurov [R.0C] moved the Mailing List [R.0D] to the Foundation's server
hosted at Pizarro [R.0E].
0x016: jurov moved the Foundation website to the Foundation's server hosted at
0x02]: Continuing Steps
0x020: mod6 has been asked [R.0F] to move towards creation of the TRB vtree
using keccak hashes. Which will also include a review of the
Republican keccak implementation.
0x021: mod6 conducted a regrind and hash been testing a vpatch for the
phexdigit bug discovered previously [R.10]. This regrind vpatch will
not be published as-is, until there is a keccak tree. This patch
will be emplaced in that tree going forward, once it's created.
0x022: The Raw Transactions project has been on a bit of a hiatus in recent
months; new things have come up since this project got underway.
It will be placed back on the shelf for now to focus on other pressing
0x030: 0.02153823 BTC for colocation services at Pizarro [October] [R.11].
Happy 4th Anniversary to The Bitcoin Foundation!
The Bitcoin Foundation would like to bestow our sincerest thanks and
gratitude to the contributors and community for its support and insight.
