Updated vspd to v1.1.1 which fixes a bug preventing vote preferences to be changed after a ticket purchase. The count of live tickets on the legacy dcrstakepool is down to 9. After the on-chain vote completes and the hard-fork occurs, it will no longer be possible to run the legacy code. The old stakepool will be decommissioned at that time.
There's still 20 live tickets on the legacy dcrstakepool. The legacy voting wallets will still be maintained up until the hard fork, at which point it will be impossible to continue running dcrstakepool. That will be the last chance for those users to upgrade their wallets, before facing the inability to vote on blocks.
The legacy stakepool service continues to vote for tickets for a few users that have not yet migrated. So the plan is to purge email addresses, the last remaining user identifiable information, from the database. This way the operation can persist for as long as necessary while still adhering to our goal of optimizing stakeholder privacy.
Just completed maintenance on vspd. The web interface for the old dcrstakepool has been removed, however the legacy stakepoold nodes and the legacy api will continue to be maintained until users have migrated to vspd. If you're still using the legacy voting service, please upgrade or you may not be able to cast your votes when the next hard fork comes up. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns!
Congrats to the Decred project on releasing version 1.6!
Don't forget to verify your installer by hashing with sha256 and comparing to the PGP signed manifests on github.
And of course if you've been buying ticktes using the Decrediton 1.6 release candidate, you don't need to log into the website at all. You can simply (and privately) select your voting choice directly in your own wallet.
I finally spent some time learning to use vimdiff as a git mergetool!
Testnet vsp is back and upgraded. :D
