0x00]: Introduction

   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.

0x01]: Accomplishments

   [Vpatch Submissions]:

   asciilifeform [R.03] contributed an EXPERIMENTAL vpatch [R.04] via the
   BTC-Dev Mailing List [R.05].  This experimental vpatch requests blocks from
   all nodes that send a version message.

   ben_vulpes contributed a vpatch `excise hash truncation' [R.06] that
   eliminates all hash truncation in trb logs.

   ben_vulpes contributed an EXPERIMENTAL vpatch [R.07] that continues in the
   same vein as the vpatch [R.04], removing the MAX_OUTBOUND_CONNECTIONS and
   one-connection-per-C-block constraints.

   [Updates To Advertised Republican Nodes]:

   asciilifeform's `zoolag' re-added to the list.
   pete_dushenski's [R.08] second node added to the list.
   Bingo_Boingo's [R.09] node added to the list.

   The full list of Advertised Republican Nodes can be viewed here [R.0A].


   jurov [R.0B] and mod6 collaborated to create a deedbot [R.0C] mirror [R.0D].

   mod6 updated the ``Creating, Naming, and Submitting a Vpatch'' guide [R.0E]
   where a specific addition is inserted to advise users:

      NOTE:  No PGP clearsigned material in vpatches.  Also, no '--- ' or '+++ '
      as the first four characters of any line.  You have been warned! [R.0F].

   The conversation continued, and about a week later, phf [R.10] began work on
   a proper vdiff tool [R.11].

0x02]: Complications and Obstacles

   A defect was found [R.12] in mod6's V (99994) where if you have greater than
   one leaf in the flow, and you select to press all of the way through the
   flow, you could end up pressing leafs that you didn't intend to press [R.13].

   mod6 is working towards a correction to this problem, curbing all other
   current non-mission critical efforts.

   Three new tickets were also added to the V project.  A ticket to track the
   aforementioned defect [R.14], one as a change request to fail informatively
   [R.15], and lastly one to document all of mod6's vtron and the rules that it
   has implemented stemming from congressional discourse [R.16].

0x03]: Continuing Steps

   Early in the month, mod6 was doing investigatory work within the trb wallet.
   This work will continue when the defect in mod6's vtron are fixed.

0x04]: Conclusion

   The Bitcoin Foundation would like to bestow our sincerest thanks and
   gratitude to the contributors and community for its support and insight.
