Would these improvements also solve the 4gb max log size issue or will that stay?
@punkmonk.phone At first, no. The 4gb limit is not the most pressing limit (giving that we'll hit it in the far future), the other limits have priority, such as entering out-of-memory territory concerning indexes, or social limits such as people's patience to wait for a 2GB log to replicate and index. I definitely support the idea of extending the 4gb limit in the way that Dominic suggested ("pages" with u64 checkpoints but offsets still expressed in u32), sometime later.
Are you proposing to take the money away from that process?
@Matt Lorentz I'm not proposing changing that process at all, I think @elavoie can lead that. I'm just suggesting one goal or "priority" as to where those funds could go.
