This entails the entire logging, serialization, crypto, error dealing with, and customary information constructions (headers/blocks/txs).”
“Most of this was already written for Grin++, however since some elements have been hurriedly coded on a decent time schedule, I’m utilizing this chance to go over each line with a fine-tooth comb. As a part of this, I’m standardizing patterns that have been initially adopted inconsistently, backfilling lacking assessments, and including higher documentation.”
