March 28, 2019 Meeting Topics
- topic proposed by gmaxwell: Bech32 support shipped first in Bitcoin Core in Feb 2018, more than a year ago. We should consider making an announcement that Bitcoin Core intends to change the default addresstype from p2sh-segwit to bech32 in 0.19 or 0.20.
- (obviously we'd continue to support getting p2sh-segwit on demand, but any service that doesn't support sending to bc1x addresses would see a rise in complaints/support requests.
- https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Bech32_adoption < useful reference.
- (and now I think I've said enough that the discussion can be had without me around)

December 13, 2018 Meeting Topics
- topic proposed by jamesob: I'd like to revisit making some headway on one of the outstanding "add address index" PRs (e.g. #14035). Many companies end up using dubious peripheral systems (e.g. Bitcore) simply because bitcoind doesn't offer an address index, and I think there's a case to be made that the engineering costs & risk associated with maintaining such an index in core is outweighed by the practical risk many companies assume in having to run less-than-ideal indexing software. Would like to also discuss the alternative of having a "blessed" peripheral program that does indexing should an in-core index prove objectionable.
December 6, 2018 Meeting Topics
- topic proposed by moneyball: next CoreDev meetup...be ready to give feedback at Thursday's weekly meeting...considering 3 days prior to Breaking Bitcoin June 5-7 in Amsterdam https://twitter.com/breakingbitcoin/status/1070060118866305026

On "Bitcoin Core design documentation":

There are currently a lot of high-level design considerations that aren't documented in the codebase. Some of them may exist in individual contributor's gists, or might not be written down at all. Should we try to have some standard location to put them in so it's easier for people to understand why things are the way they are? One suggestion would be to use github's wiki feature.
