Huge opportunity missed; they didn't call it Voldemort's vision conference

bitcoin core code contributors need to step up their game on patch quality. There's a reason linux has such strict standards for patches. They're constrained by reviewers, not coders. Smaller, more logical patches with detailed descriptions is going to become more and more important going forward.

So many PRs have commits with no descriptions in them. I'm looking at right now. how do you even review this, there's no explanation at all, just vague descriptions.

@samourai_official is there somewhere I can download the apk directly? I don't have the play store on my phone.

I haven't been following the BCH clownshow but apparently they're hard forking again already? Who would have guessed that.

I've created @bitcoinmerges!
this bot will send a toot every time something is merged into the bitcoin core github repository, similar to Pierre Rochard's bitcoinmerges on birdsite

it finished syncing
took somewhat longer than expected because it had to restart from scratch on nbd instead of a sd card (which is buggy at the moment), but it got there without further issues that's neat
