(2) Open discussions
(2.1) on Seraphis9:
Rucknium was still waiting for ArticMine’s feedback on his draft: it’s been 4 months so at some point I will just have to implement the plan in the document hyc and isthmus gave a green light to the general plan18
Rucknium also noted that OSPEAD will have some blind spots due to lack of C++ support after other members of the MAGIC Monero Committee voted to close mj’s fundraiser19 due to a lack of funds raised after two months
UkoeHB was wondering how much code is needed to get OSPEAD in shape; Rucknium shared a very rough guess: the total number of C++ lines that would need to be written for tasks 1 - 3 there is…maybe 2k
isthmus was curious if the analysis code could be written in something other than C++; Rucknium thought that a fast language like C, Rust, and even Fortran would be nice and revealed that he is planning to write it in R; hyc noted that Fortran might actually be most appropriate for the job
rbrunner suggested a somewhat pragmatic first attempt to get ‘something’ better than now out of the door; Rucknium agreed and underlined that not having fast code doesn’t stop the project: It creates some blind spots. I will make it work with the resources that we have.
