Bitcoin Core Development Status Report #2

Hm, I am Not Happy about a feature of the new protocol. It's unfortunate that -- although I can hear the gears of politics turning in the document -- the details of the argument that spawned it are not laid out there for me to read.In this day and age, using X.509 for something like this is ... pretty bad. The bitcoin community elsewhere has standardized on PGP, and with very good reason; X.509 is a well-known clusterfuck. I understand wanting to include an X.509 option anyway, if the point is not to improve usability by the bitcoin community, but rather by people who aren't already in it. But I do not think the lack of a PGP option is excusable, and I do not wish to see the protocol succeed in its current form for that reason. (I can't imagine a significant fraction of the bitcoin community will want it to succeed in this form either.)
