Was joking, but isn't the translation process back-ended with runtime tests to 
ensure that any stray chars etc cause the application to fail?

 I think it's more an issue of accidental breakage than any maliciousness. One 
 character in the wrong place in a language bundle somewhere can make the 
 difference between success and runtime failure, and it may not be immediately 
 apparent when running in unaffected locales. This kind of problem isn't 
 likely to result in data loss (or money loss, where money is data, is in 
 Bitcoin), but it could be enough to necessitate scrapping the whole release, 
 which would look bad and prompt users to question the dev team's quality 
 control process.

There is some postprocessing done in the script that fetches
translation files (see
https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/contrib/devtools/update-translations.py
). It removes stray control characters, but for example there is no
check for number and presence of formatting characters. I generally
check that by manually looking through the diffs. But would be great
if someone added that.

Hah, if there was to be a prize I'd rather have people looking out for
icebergs than for wrongly arranged deck chairs :-)

[Bitcoin-development] instant confirmation via payment protocol backwards compatible proto buffer extension

2014-06-14 Thread Lawrence Nahum
Hello,

I had the pleasure to meet some of you in Amsterdam and/or to speak on
#bitcoin-dev but this is actually my first message to the mailing list - I
feel a bit clumsy so apologies in advance if I make any mistake :)

Quick introduction/background: my name is Lawrence Nahum and I'm the
founder of GreenAddress, a BIP32 multisignature service and instant
confirmation platform available in form of web socket APIs and Wallet for
mobile, desktop and web. My background is in CS with distributed systems
and I've worked most of my career in the City on OTC financial services
like confirmation and clearing platforms.

This post is to gather feedback, comments and reviews about a BIP70 payment
protocol proto buffer extension proposal.

https://github.com/greenaddress/bips/blob/bip-payment-request-instant-confirmations/bip-payment-request-instant-confirmations.mediawiki

If you are interested in GreenAddress design or for more information on
GreenAddress you can find the white paper here
http://ghgreenaddress.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/greenaddressp2sh2of2hd-61.pdf
and our homepage on https://greenaddress.it

Cheers,
Lawrence

Re: [Bitcoin-development] instant confirmation via payment protocol backwards compatible proto buffer extension

2014-06-14 Thread Andreas Schildbach
Just a quick comment:

The supports_instant field seems redundant to me. First, as per your
spec, you can derive it from trusted_instant_providers. And second, why
do you need it at all? Protobuf is designed so it will simply ignore
fields you don't know. So you can just send the instant_* fields in the
Payment message without harm.
