Comment 1 Kevin Bowling freebsd_committer 2019-11-29 03:13:59 UTC
Do we actually need this (i.e. a documented user request)?
Comment 2 Alex Dupre freebsd_committer 2019-11-29 06:42:04 UTC
Not a specific user request, but it was on by default until 0.18, and in 0.19 was switched to off, so perhaps someone was using it. Personally I don't care if you want to completely drop it.

Actually I had the full patch to update to 0.19, add the switch and cleanup the port, but when the updated was committed a few minutes before I was able to submit the patch, so I submitted only the remaining parts.
Comment 3 Kevin Bowling freebsd_committer 2019-11-29 08:20:42 UTC
There are some politics with this in bitcoin core:  https://news.bitcoin.com/devs-remove-bip70-payment-protocol-from-bitcoin-cores-default-settings/ and it will be gone in the next version.

If a user asks for it I will approve that part of your patch, until then I'd prefer to keep the complexity and churn for the next major down if you don't have a specific need.  I am fine with your other changes in this patch if you wish to commit them.
Comment 4 Alex Dupre freebsd_committer 2019-11-29 09:07:39 UTC
Ok, I agree, I've committed just the cleanup.
