Hello all, We're getting ready for Bitcoin Core's 0.13.1 release - the first one to include segregated witness (BIP 141, 143, 144, 145) for Bitcoin mainnet, after being extensively tested on testnet and in other software. Following the BIP9 recommendation  to set the versionbits start time a month in the future and discussion in the last IRC meeting , I propose we set BIP 141's start time to November 15, 2016, 0:00 UTC (unix time 1479168000).
Note that this is just a lower bound on the time when the versionbits signalling can begin. Activation on the network requires: (1) This date to pass (2) A full retarget window of 2016 blocks with 95% signalling the version bit (bit 1 for BIP141) (3) A fallow period consisting of another 2016 blocks.  https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/master/bip-0009.mediawiki  http://www.erisian.com.au/meetbot/bitcoin-core-dev/2016/bitcoin-core-dev.2016-10-13-19.04.log.html Cheers, -- Pieter _______________________________________________ bitcoin-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/bitcoin-dev
