This is good new information, thanks!
It is information over a month old. See counter.
A sensible approach might be:
1. Allow the implementation of Schnorr signatures
Very risky- this impacts tx message integrity and authenticity. Changing
transaction signing code impacts private keys and other security sensitive
In comparison, changing the size of the message container - a block - does
not impact message integrity and authenticity.
2. In parallel, address the issues raised on the segwit2x codebase
Link to the issues filed?
3. Unfreeze the segwit2x code, and seek a dialogue with core on a timeline
for a 2x block size increase
All field evidence points to continual delays, never a base block size
increase as has been planned since 2010.
Repeated attempts at dialogue just result in attacks, delays, The Familiar
The reason being that we've just had a capacity upgrade and segwit is
starting to kick in. Blocks are less congested now. Schnorr will likely
give another 30% capacity quite soon. This will allow general hardware
increases to make moving to 2x blocks, without a contentious hard fork,
It is extremely contentious to continue blocking a block size increase.
Continued delay is part of what produced the gridlock that we saw over the
past two years.
Just my 2 cents.
