mod6: I have a bit of a question here..
mod6: so going back to our discussion regarding: a->b->c->d all signed by x, if 'c' is removed then the flow should be a->b and now 'd' has become orphaned. the correct strictness, 'v' (wot-variant) drops 'c' out all together.
mod6: the reason, I'm finding, that my previous patch still listed a->b->d in the flow, is because 'd' got picked up as a root. and the reason it does is because at this point, it has no antecedents.
mod6: one way, I've found, to solve this is to ensure that any root in my list of roots, must be a "true root", in such that if the vpatch's every 'a'='false', then it is a "true root".
mod6: is this proper?
phf: yes
phf: also it's called "genesis"
mod6: phf: ok, see, there is a hack i could have put in, instead. where i just ensure that my root is named like /genesis/. But what if someguy calls his root, 1000 years from now, xyz.vpatch.
mod6: Then he's got a problem. So i felt like this type of checking, is more strict. And if it is proper, I will proceed.
asciilifeform: mod6: 'genesis' means 'all antecedents are 'false'n rather than 'no valid antecedents'
phf: ^
ben_vulpes: mod6: moreover the general case is looking to be "project-genesis.vpatch"
mod6: asciilifeform: sweet! then i think im in good shape.
phf: i don't mean that the patch is called "genesis", i mean that the concept is called genesis, so there's no need for new nomenclature like "true root"
mod6: ben_vulpes: so you think, what i'm calling the 'hack' to be just as good or more appropriate here? i'd rather check, personally.
mod6: http://www.mod6.net/v-99994-trace5.txt << here's a sample of what i'm saying
ben_vulpes: nono, it's not a hack to do here
phf: (defun genesisp (vpatch)
phf: (every (lambda (hunk) (null (from-hash hunk))) (hunks vpatch)))
mod6: im not sure that i get this ^ but... i think we're all saying the same thing.
asciilifeform: there is NO reason to 'enmagic' the string 'genesis'
mod6: <+asciilifeform> mod6: 'genesis' means 'all antecedents are 'false'n rather than 'no valid antecedents' << just to re-iterate, does 'genesis' also apply to 'root' ?
asciilifeform: ever.
asciilifeform: i can name a genesis xyz.vpatch.
mod6: right ^
mod6: this is what i wanted to avoid.
mod6: so i'll check, and accumulate roots that have only hashes that = 'false'.
phf: mod6: there's no such thing as "root". there's only genesis. you find all patches that satisfy the genesis requirement ("all antecedents are false") and you build your graph down from there
mod6: this is not true according to v99 from alf ^
mod6: "# It is entirely possible to have more than one root! ... exactly how, is left as an exercise for readers."
phf: well, then alf is being sloppy with his terminology
phf: root is a compsci term for a the topmost element of a tree. genesis is a vtronic term for the origin. on imlementation level they are identical, and generally describe the same concept, but in general "root" being "genesis" is an implementation detail
mod6: agree. just trying to be 100% positive I'm doing the right thing, before I do it. And it is discussion worthy imho.
ben_vulpes: in entirely unrelated microsoftery, http://archive.is/UrLGx
phf: mod6: we're on the same page
mod6: werd. thx for your input.
mircea_popescu: the point where genesis has for an antecedent "false" and nothing else is imo controlling.
mircea_popescu: no patch can be elevated to the status of genesis ; if it is a genesis of something it knows this, and the way it knows this is through the antecedent being false
mircea_popescu: which makes alf's objection to the mega discussion re antecedent enforcing etc weaker than he cares for it to be : turns out we ALREADY have the state machine.

mircea_popescu: pete_dushenski looks like stock blackholing. ipban the offenders, see what happens.
asciilifeform: one thing that palpably helps is the aws banhammer.
mircea_popescu: yes.
mircea_popescu: anyway - properly indexing txn so that we deliver the full data set ; properly handling the blackhole thing will actually ruin prb because nobody's fuycking migrating to their new protocol.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: blackhole, in my current understanding, is at least 4 distinct things
pete_dushenski: mircea_popescu: have done some, will try more banning.
asciilifeform: (that lead to same state - wedged node)
mircea_popescu: this'd make some fine subject of a priority work order, the only problem is that it's so intricate and we aren't fans of doing the work n times. but once trb sits down on a sql-fs it would all fall in place.
asciilifeform: and it is not in fact held up by the fs thing.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the idea, as idiscussed a few days ago, is to separate things and queue.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: ultimately for so long as peers are unauthenticated and speak unauthenticated plaintext , there will be type4 blackhole.
mircea_popescu: never mind that.
asciilifeform: (the one unattributable to overload of any type)
asciilifeform: and for so long as block verification is single-processor, there will remain type1
ben_vulpes: while you're at it, type2 and type3 are?
asciilifeform: type2 ( pete_dushenski's ) is the garden variety shitflood. which is sometimes solved by ip ban, but only in the case of 'shrapnel addressed to occupant', i.e. idiot prb nodes wildly spamming crapolade, and not in the 'bullet with your name on it' case, where somebody actually has a sybil constellation drowning your trb node in liquishit, with no SINGLE ip misbehaving in any way
asciilifeform: type3 (this taxonomy is strictly from asciilifeform's notes, and is no canonical animal of any kind) is the 'thinking man's shitflood', where requested inventory is not a DOS by virtue of ~quantity~, but ~quality~ (flood of questionable but not immediately/cheaply rejectable material)
asciilifeform: 4 is where 1,2,3 can be ruled out with some confidence. could be mircea_popescu's 'magic packet', or just about anything, i have ~0 useful data.

asciilifeform: but some -- did. the orphanage removals certainly did.
asciilifeform: ditto 'malleus'.
asciilifeform: the important thing to observe , in each case, is whether it changed semantics in a way that can be ~understood~
asciilifeform: in the case of the orphanages, they had 0 constructive purpose. they were like the 'death glands' on that one species of octopus. snip'em and you get octopus that lives for +2 yrs and no other effect.
