8) Bitcoin devs should post a notice on software to inform node operators of their timeframe to respond to non-backward compatible changes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

7) IMO, software dev & internet tech are fast paced and participants should be responding to major changes in weeks/months, not a year+.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

6) As a result, many Bitcoin developers are extremely conservative and suggest that lead time for hard forks should be greater than 1 year.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

5) Problem: devs haven’t communicated to node operators the expected lead time of notices for deploying non-backward compatible changes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

4) Bitcoin devs aren’t responsible for damages caused by node operators who don’t keep themselves apprised of developments to the protocol.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

3) Bitcoin protocol developers have a responsibility to give node operators advance notice of non-backward compatible upgrades.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lopp

2) Thus Bitcoin node operators have a responsibility to maintain both the software and the hardware they are using to run their node.

1) If you administer a computer that is used to secure people’s money, you have responsibility to keep it running like a well-oiled machine.
