In episode 30 @AaronvanW and I talk about Bitcoin Core hardware wallet support. We cover HWI as well as Specter.
Please promote this far and wide. If you are on Twitter please post on Twitter and any other online forums you use. https://gist.github.com/michaelfolkson/92899f27f1ab30aa2ebee82314f8fe7f

New Taproot activation proposal on the mailing list "Speedy trial". This looks like it could progress in Core. If your top priority is getting Taproot activated, I'd encourage supporting this. If your top priority is LOT=true over getting Taproot activated I can see why you might oppose this. Personally my top priority is Taproot activation. https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2021-March/018583.html
If you support a BIP 8 (1 year, LOT=true) UASF please join ##uasf on IRC. Fighting through the obfuscation, politics and ego wars is torture but we do need to finalize a timetable that everyone is happy with as soon as is possible. And I'm directing all the noise to other channels to keep ##uasf relatively noise free.
I2P network support was just merged into Bitcoin Core for the upcoming v22 release, adding a second privacy network available to users / nodes (please test it and report any issues). 🥳
As it stands, I will be running the LOT=True alternative release.
Initial LOT=True kick off meeting set for tomorrow (Tuesday) 19:00 UTC on Freenode ##uasf IRC channel

the documentation for setting up authentication for Tor V3 onion services could use some improvement
i managed to figure it out but had to use a some python snippet from a gist, and manually created various extra directories and files, i could understand if many users run into trouble
At Wednesday's Bitcoin Core review club, we'll continue our review of the Python implementation of Minisketch.
