What

Would love to prolong my Monero coding for another 3 months and dedicate 40h/week, i.e. to work full-time.

There are some specific tasks i would like to work on first.

  • CORE: Integrate @tevador's 14-word seed (with wallet restore height encoded) library (related discussion https://github.com/monero-project/monero/issues/6639, PoC https://github.com/tevador/monero-seed)
  • GUI: Tooltips implementation
  • GUI: Restoring wallet from seed - next word prediction/suggestion
  • GUI: Remote node mode - multiple remote nodes support

As usual will be working on Monero Core and Monero GUI code:

  • Inspecting and implementing ongoing feature requests
  • Submitting bug fixes
  • New functionality
  • Code review
  • Putting my efforts where it is appropriate

Proposal

Looking forward to coding and accomplishing mentioned and ongoing tasks and issues. Implementing new code/functionality that will be needed. Investigating bug reports and submitting bug fixes, fixing build and compilations errors/warnings/etc. Would like to inspect and complete/fix/address issues and feature requests that are reasonably desired and/or worth to spend time on. Improving GUI, fixing UI/UX issues, implementing design changes.
