Justin Berman1 has posted the third and final Monero development progress report2 for his Feb-May 2022 CCS proposal34:

Hours worked: >480 (I stopped keeping track of my hours after hitting 480. I hit that mark around late April) [..] I’ve spent the majority of my time reviewing code since last update.


  • reviewed PR 7760 which includes a rewrite of the daemon connection code to fix important issues.5
  • dug deeper into Dandelion++ to review PR 80766 which reduces time to load wallets by reducing trips to the daemon
  • identified and patched tx submission bugs/daemon reliability issues with tor/i2p daemons
  • since Ledger was fairly unresponsive, I implemented the changes needed for the upcoming hard fork to make sure the code is ready.
  • patched a cryptographic vulnerability in monero-python (identified by kayabaNerve)7 [..]
