mod6: Attention TRB Testers: If you want to help test, please take the time to build trb via trinque's makefiles here; (Should be basically getting & verifing the tar ball; plus setting up a ~/.wot dir with keys for V to use) -- then a `make` in the directory. Please report your findings. Thanks.
assbot: [BTC-dev] Experimental makefiles for bitcoind ... ( )
shinohai: I'm gonna give those a go today on the server, it's idle since I got latest patched.
jurov: oh when i see it: trinque and everyone, pls send detached signatures as <name>.sig
trinque: jurov: k
jurov: ml currently passes all attachments regardless when there is valid clearsigned text but it may not always the case
mod6: <+jurov> oh when i see it: trinque and everyone, pls send detached signatures as <name>.sig << for V to work properly the sigfiles (seals) need to be named the same as the vpatch filename with a .sig on the end. is that what you're saying?
jurov: not it is not related to v
jurov: it is how ml prosesses attachments
jurov: *processes
mod6: i.e.: asciilifeform-kills-integer-retardation.vpatch && asciilifeform-kills-integer-retardation.vpatch.asciilifeform.sig
mod6: that's how they need to be
jurov: why the second .asciilifeform ?
jurov: one is .anything , the other one .anything.sig
mod6: so i was wrong above, not just .sig, but <vpatch_name>.vpatch.<wot_id>.sig
jurov: or V requires author's name in the suffix?
mod6: take a look at these:
assbot: Index of /v/seals ... ( )
jurov: oh my, who designed this?
mod6: that's how they need to be.
mod6: alf
mod6: which, i think is fine because then i can sign that patch and call it: asciilifeform-kills-integer-retardation.vpatch.mod6.sig
mod6: and then v can differentiate them easily
mod6: !up ascii_butugychag
jurov: so imma have a regex like ([^_]+)_.*?\.vpatch\.(.*?)\.sig to find out something to feed to v?
ascii_butugychag: jurov, mod6: i designed the naming convention this way deliberately
ascii_butugychag: the first name (not used by v for anything) is the ~author~
ascii_butugychag: the second - used by the sig checker - is WHO SIGNED
jurov: but it requires PARSING
ascii_butugychag: these, ideally, will NOT always be the same, i keep trying to encourage folks to read and sign MY patches (and that of others)
ascii_butugychag: jurov: theoretically you can avoid using the name prior to .sig, but then you have to check ALL seals agains ALL patches ALWAYS and this is O(N^2)
ascii_butugychag: so go ahead, don't parse, but then enjoy waiting
ascii_butugychag: during every single op.
jurov: is it too late to use some better delimiter to extract the parts?
ascii_butugychag: like what ?
jurov: :
ascii_butugychag: what os are you on that is happy with : in paths ? vms ?
ascii_butugychag: what the hell is wrong with . ?
jurov: authorname:patchname:signername.vpatch.sig
jurov: then use dot after authorname, too
ascii_butugychag: but... why??
jurov: it is relevant for ml
ascii_butugychag: why not FIX THE ML
ascii_butugychag: instead of breaking v.
jurov: also, what if someone has a nick with _ ?
jurov: like mircea_popescu
ascii_butugychag: that makes no difference
mircea_popescu: huh ?
ascii_butugychag: the author name is for human eyes only
ascii_butugychag: only the signer-name is machine-parsed
jurov: yes? how do i extract author and patchname?
ascii_butugychag: why do you need to ?
ascii_butugychag: recall how mircea_popescu argued that it makes no sense to mechanically distinguish between author and signers?
jurov: you say noone will ever need to?
ascii_butugychag: the correct way to do this is for the first seal to be deedbotted to produce the attribution of the author.
ascii_butugychag: rather than magicks in the filenamez.
ascii_butugychag: protocol vs promise (tm) (r)
mircea_popescu: if i want to represent alf's signature as "asciilifeform", "ascii_butugychag" or more or just a subset, it should be up to me.
jurov: and how does ml match signarute to vpatch?
mircea_popescu: same fingerprint no ?
ascii_butugychag: using the .name.sig convention
ascii_butugychag: as now.
mircea_popescu: uh
jurov: someonse sends 3 patches with 3 sigs, I either have to get the match with gnarly regext above
mircea_popescu: didn't you just contradict yourself ?
ascii_butugychag: and realize that we can set all the filenames to 'fuckyou' and v will still work
jurov: or try to match each vs. each
ascii_butugychag: correctly
ascii_butugychag: just, slowly
ascii_butugychag: O(N^2)
jurov: why v can't require strict naming?
ascii_butugychag: why must it ?
ascii_butugychag: why tie to filesystem oddities that may go away when we get a sane os ?
jurov: to not need O(N^2) sig verificaiton
jurov: how will sane os solve this?
ascii_butugychag: jurov: it doesn't need even now. what is your problem with patchname.signer.sig ?
ascii_butugychag: i could even see the argument that 'signer' oughta be a gpg fp
jurov: because i need to match it to patchname.vpatch
ascii_butugychag: it matches trivially!
jurov: no it maps to patchname.vpatch.<unknown>.sig
ascii_butugychag: patchname in 'patchname.vpatch' must equal patchname in patchname.signer.sig
ascii_butugychag: jurov: holy shit, why ??
jurov: how?
ascii_butugychag: v - works.
ascii_butugychag: mine works, mod6's works, possibly ben_vulpes's also works.
jurov: v works because it has prearranged files, wot keys
ascii_butugychag: and now jurov has something that does not ? so fix ~it~ plox ?
ascii_butugychag: prearranged, aha. what's wrong with that ?
jurov: i just have some random bunch of name.vpatvh and somethingother.sig someone sends by email
ascii_butugychag: if you want the filenames to be garbage, you will have O(N^2) evaluation.
ascii_butugychag: there is no way around this.
ascii_butugychag: and i don't see why permit garbage.
jurov: i want filename.vpatch that i can just take and slap .sig in the end of it to find a signature
ascii_butugychag: very bad
ascii_butugychag: because it will end up trying to overwrite every OTHER sig
jurov: but this is Not Possible, now I have to parse the patchname out, and use that to look for sigs
ascii_butugychag: more than one person signs a patch
ascii_butugychag: i wrote v the way i did so that ALL patches and ALL seals can coexist on my disk and it be HUMAN-obvious which belong to whom and what.
jurov: ok, why can't the .vpatch and author fields swap?
ascii_butugychag: give example of the result ?
ascii_butugychag: let's start with 'asciilifeform_tx-orphanage_amputation.vpatch.mod6.sig'
jurov: bitcoin-asciilifeform.1.mod6.vpatch.sig
ascii_butugychag: what will this be under new convention ?
jurov: also, what the 1 left over after splitting by '.' does there?
jurov: it would be 'asciilifeform_tx-orphanage_amputation.mod6.vpatch.sig'
ascii_butugychag: how does this help anything ?
ascii_butugychag: that .mod6. does not belong in the vpatch name
ascii_butugychag: it relates ONLY to the seal
jurov: so?
ascii_butugychag: so i don't see what the point is of this change
ascii_butugychag: it breaks everybody's 'v'
ascii_butugychag: to what end ?
jurov: instead of *.vpatch.*.sig you have *.vpatch.sig filenames which are a bit easier to work with
ascii_butugychag: HOW?
ascii_butugychag: the .asciilifeform.sig IMMEDIATELY tells you that asciilifeform signed the thing before the .
ascii_butugychag: what the fuck is the point of garbling it ?
ascii_butugychag: easier for WHAT ?
jurov: eh nm
PeterL: should have patch.vpatch and patch.vpatch.SIGNER1.sig and patch.vpatch.SIGNER2.sig ?
ascii_butugychag: PeterL: this is the EXISTING convention, yes
ascii_butugychag: which happens to be sane.
PeterL: ok, makes sense to me, why change it?
ascii_butugychag: PeterL: idk, but jurov had some reason, which i still don't fully grasp
jurov: nevermind, i said, i did not though to be som paramount
jurov: only the question what is the '1' in bitcoin-asciilifeform.1.mod6.vpatch.sig doing there
ascii_butugychag: actually in that case i've no idea, iirc mod6 put it there
mod6: a long time ago. we had a different convention.
mod6: and now its written in stone.
ascii_butugychag: the fortunate thing is that it is NOT
ascii_butugychag: v will run if you rename the patch to 'fuckyou' and the sig to 'fuckapig'
ascii_butugychag: (or rather, a slightly improved 'v' will run, existing one requires patch name to remain same)
ascii_butugychag: but then you get O(N^2), yes.
jurov: so if there is a RFC someday you're against specifying filename convention?
ascii_butugychag: yes.
ascii_butugychag: let me say why.
ascii_butugychag: the O(N^2) instrinsic runtime of unknown-patch-bag+unknown-sig-bag is something i realized from the start
ascii_butugychag: and i don't see it as a serious boojum
ascii_butugychag: because i don't believe that any project has any business cancerously growing patches until this turns into a serious boojum.
ascii_butugychag: after a certain point, there oughta be a new genesis.
mod6: any way the real sig name is currently "bitcoin-asciilifeform.1.vpatch.mod6.sig" not <+jurov> only the question what is the '1' in bitcoin-asciilifeform.1.mod6.vpatch.sig doing there
ascii_butugychag: nothing lives forever.
ascii_butugychag: the other thing i oughta mention is that imho a core principle of v-ism is that it is impermissible for trust to be implicitly delegated.
ascii_butugychag: this means that at no point do ~i~ get to do less verification ~because of something the mirror host does~ - e.g., verify mailed in patches
ascii_butugychag: i have to do THE SAME amount of verification work.
ascii_butugychag: or we're using shithub, not v.
ascii_butugychag: this means that if jurov's box has to verify my patch against every known sig every single time it presses to post to www, SO SHOULD MINE
ascii_butugychag: does this make sense ?
ascii_butugychag: no implicit delegations.
ascii_butugychag: in EXACTLY same way as my trb node does THE SAME amount of number crunching whether it hears a block from gavin's node or from mircea_popescu's.
jurov: what??? i said nothing bout delegations
ascii_butugychag: jurov: this is separate, mostly
ascii_butugychag: but you also gotta consider what your box will do if it gets an inappropriately (for whatever reason) named patch.
ascii_butugychag: what i say is that REGARDLESS of the names, if THE CRYPTO is valid, it is a VALID patch/seal tuple.
ascii_butugychag: for all time.
jurov: it will publish and otherwise ignore it, I will tell everyone to add it to their v repository by hand.
jurov: (if anyone asks)

jurov: i don't see ml as any authoritative source, nor it can't be
jurov: that does not mean it can't be tidy
mod6: so what are we trying to achieve here?
mod6: its a good start to just not mangle the filenames -- thats all set now right?
mod6: !up ascii_butugychag
jurov: mod6 if it can validate a signature (by name, NOT by scanning all files), it will add to its v mirror
jurov: that's all
mircea_popescu: in other news,
assbot: ... ( )
mod6: jurov: oh ok, you were gonna have the ML dump the vpatch & seal out to a second mirror?
ascii_butugychag: incidentally
ascii_butugychag: since folks are contemplating 'ideal v'
jurov: what does "seal out" mean?
ascii_butugychag: has anyone a position on whether patches oughta be broken into atoms ?
ascii_butugychag: that is, individual 'patchons' ?
mircea_popescu: jurov dump (the vpatch & seal) out to
jurov: oh that, yes
ascii_butugychag: (the objects where ---whatever, HASH +++whatever, HASH)
mircea_popescu: we'll end up with bitcoin-lispassets.
mod6: ascii_butugychag: you mean, atoms in the sense of vpatches only for individual source files touched?
ascii_butugychag: well if you think about it, the way we have it now is actually more complicated
ascii_butugychag: in that things that have no business being glued together, ARE
ascii_butugychag: from sheer historical accident
ascii_butugychag: mod6: correct
mod6: we could do it that way, it /may/ make things easier in the sense of V -- we've been doing it the way we are to keep the patch count low iirc.
ascii_butugychag: mod6: correct. and to save wear on our trigger fingers
ascii_butugychag: but it may lead us to tears later.
jurov: and why?
ascii_butugychag: i will leave the 'why' as an exercise. largely because this is not a pressing issue.
jurov: i see it as going back to RCS , no idea otherwise
ascii_butugychag: rcs ?
jurov: iirc it tracked changes per one file only
assbot: RCS - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation ... ( )
ascii_butugychag: btw i hope everybody understands that life with 'v' is always going to resemble dark age blood sports like cvs, etc. far more than modern greased poles (e.g., 'git')

ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: sounds splendid
mircea_popescu: << what's your idea of that certain point ? 1k ? 10k ? 1mn ?
assbot: Logged on 18-01-2016 15:59:27; ascii_butugychag: after a certain point, there oughta be a new genesis.
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: 'when epoch ends'
ascii_butugychag: it isn't a numeric thing
mircea_popescu: seems on some very rudimentary testing and evaluation that the compile would still take longer than the gathering of patches with ~1mn ish of them around
ascii_butugychag: and it parallelizes.
mircea_popescu: but this is not a matter to be handwaved.
jurov: i did not say anything about comfort, either. how do you propose bundling the patch spanning several files where hunks don't make sense individually?
mircea_popescu: for the following reason : v adoption will induce a major shift in how software is treated,
mircea_popescu: and your guess depends on how people software as a much lower node on that tree.
mircea_popescu: people will NOT WANT to genesis an old and famous tree.
ascii_butugychag: why not ?
punkman: ascii_butugychag: that is, individual 'patchons' ? << darcs does some of that automatically
mircea_popescu: for the same reason louis xvth pretended he comes from the fucking sun
ascii_butugychag: one would think that an old and famous tree woudl end up perma-pressed at some point
mircea_popescu: by whom ?
ascii_butugychag: just like every kid who wants to doodle in the margins of newton's principia starts with ~the same~ edition thereof
mircea_popescu: need i remind you the lulz of recently lost ?
ascii_butugychag: rather than a randomly selected one of 100 newton-era drafts
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: wai wut??
mircea_popescu: you can't get those people in a room together to sign a new genesis.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag x lost its only asset because people couldn't agree to sit down and extend it.
ascii_butugychag: l0l!!
mircea_popescu: don't laugh, it's a necessary consequence.
deedbot-: [Trilema] USG in BTC, a history of constant failure -
ascii_butugychag: of what? lead in the water ?
mircea_popescu: consider this scenario : bitcoin in 2020. mod6 has meanwhile gone hunting seals on the artic circle. you live in a remote mining colony up on the fucking moon.
mircea_popescu: how the fuck do we "re-genesis" the bitcoin ?
ascii_butugychag: that's the job of whoever thinks it needs another million patches, no?
mircea_popescu: this is not reason.
mircea_popescu: the only saving grace i see here is that it doesn't HAVE to be n^2
mircea_popescu: it can also be n, if you just use the right fucking names.
ascii_butugychag: as i wrote it, aha.
mircea_popescu: but let us be considerate to the progeny.
ascii_butugychag: i very clearly spelled this out, when first published it.
mircea_popescu: i think we've seen enough of the pitfals of disconsidering progeny in satoshi's work.
mod6: amen
mircea_popescu: "The basic formatting conventions for RFCs were established in the 1970s by the original RFC Editor, Jon Postel."

mircea_popescu: fucking shit before you do anything you gotta dry some land first.
mircea_popescu: o look at that, importing cmos.
mircea_popescu: "The RFC Editor generally follows these accepted rules as defined by the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) [CMOS], with a few important exceptions to avoid ambiguity in complex technical prose and to handle mixtures of text and computer languages, or to preserve historical formatting rules." << kids, this is how not to code.
mircea_popescu: bah.

mircea_popescu: tel lyou what, i'ma make it a v instead, fuck this stupid shit.

mircea_popescu: not even close. it's just what you want to believe so as not to wake screaming from your sleep.

ascii_butugychag: what, i'll scream twice ?
mircea_popescu: anyway, what i'm going to do here is : write a trilema article titled The V Manual Genesis or something, which will discuss but also contain a genesis for something called v-manual
mircea_popescu: is that a good name for it ? kinda confusing as fuck
mircea_popescu: i guess in time the convention that x-manual holds the manual will resolve this.

mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag this is going towards "animated programs", where instead of looking at a program as a[n ultimately] bitmap you instead look at it as a gif, with layers coming on top of each other.
mircea_popescu: makes your "fits on page" thing much more of an issue. "all programs must fit within so and so viewport"
ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: machine only runs a flattened (pressed) item anyway
ascii_butugychag: that is the part that 'oughta fit'
mircea_popescu: anyway, a large part of trying to make a manual is that fuck me, we barely even understand what we're doing.
mircea_popescu: ascii_butugychag yes, but reading code is reading code.
ascii_butugychag: reading history - is an art
ascii_butugychag: at any rate, the large part of what i see as needing a manual, is the ~why~ of v

ascii_butugychag: the 'talmudic' view (of which my summary is by no means an expert one) is that the margin notes are like a map of a mine field
ascii_butugychag: yes, the only CONCLUSIVE guide to the mine field is... the ~blam~

ben_vulpes: (also 'dark age blood sports' lol)
BingoBoingo: "Classic American Philosophy" consists of Peirce who was cotemporaneous with James and did some interesting logic stuff. James who wrote the best American rebuttal to Hegel. Dewey who ruined everyhting with socialism.

BingoBoingo: Seriously lots of great stuff from Black American philosphers until About 1890
BingoBoingo: America's chance of having a philosophical tradition though died between 1910 and 1920 when James died, Dewey was lionized, and everyone treated James as fringe religious thinker and not rebuttal of the Hegelian.

BingoBoingo: view of the world which make infinity and continuity to be its sessence, and that pessimistic or optimistic attitudes pertain to the mere accidental subjectivity of the moment; finally, that the identification of contradictories, so far from being the self-developing process which Hegel supposes, is really a self-consuming process, passing from the less to the more abstract, and terminating either in a laugh at the ultimate nothi

ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: aha, he will put in my individual custom include paths, sure thing

ascii_butugychag: mircea_popescu: you know this fella?
mircea_popescu: nope.
BingoBoingo: Rust is Mozilla's "systems programming" language
mircea_popescu: "And if someone takes issue with something you said or did, resist the urge to be defensive. Just stop doing what it was they complained about and apologize. Even if you feel you were misinterpreted or unfairly accused, chances are good there was something you could have communicated better — remember that it’s your responsibility to make your fellow Flycheck people comfortable."
mircea_popescu: ahahahaha holy shit.
ascii_butugychag: what i want to know is how this became a standard
mircea_popescu: flycheck is hereby banned from anywhere
mircea_popescu: don't fucking include it, i will negrate you.
ascii_butugychag: and emacs was allowed to decay to the point where the tool that ACTUALLY FUCKING WORKS AND IS 100 LINES AND NEVER EVER BREAKS is now broken
ascii_butugychag: i spent all day trying to get this piece of not-even-qualified-to-be-shit to run
ascii_butugychag: then realized that it is ~intrinsically~ unusable for any serious project
mircea_popescu: foofoos an feefees are the responsibility of the foofoo-feefeer and his alone what the fuck already.
ascii_butugychag: then realized that the motherfucker prolly gets away with this because.. makefiles are 'out of fashion' !
ascii_butugychag: one is, i suspect, supposed to use some proprietary build system, such as crapple's

mircea_popescu: jurov an undecidable statement is one for which it is not known if an invalidating case exists.

asciilifeform: (... have you ~looked~ inside the ps!)
asciilifeform: at any rate i will buy a pc made in argentina some time after i buy a ru car.

phf: there "was", there was a standard package (require 'cl) that various parties were trying to kill. stefan monnier spent his emacs maintainer tenure deprecating, and i think succeeded. now you're supposed to use cl-lib, to the point that elisp goes out of the way to not highlight various cl forms
phf: first -> cl-first, defstruct -> cl-defstruct, etc. shitgnomery
ben_vulpes: but that's just because elisp completely lacks namespacing facilities, phf, there couldn't possibly be any sour-grapes malice at work!
