     [   Co-Chairs: mod6 [R.01] && ben_vulpes [R.02]    ]

0x00]: Introduction

   It is with great honor and privilege that The Bitcoin Foundation embraces
   this opportunity to address the public on the state of current progress,
   obstacles and continuing steps in our mission.

0x01]: Accomplishments

  0x010: mod6's personal node has been fully re-sync'd [R.03] and was re-added
         to the list of Advertised Republican Nodes [R.04].

  0x011: mod6 placed asciilifeform's [R.05] ``Aggressive PushGetBlocks'' [R.06]
         vpatch into the main TRB vtree.  It is considered to be a bug-fix
         [R.07].  It is ``ground'' on top of the current makefiles.vpatch, and a
         full press of the TRB vtree now goes up through
         ``asciilifeform_aggressive_pushgetblocks.vpatch''.  An announcement
         email [R.08] was sent out to the btc-dev email list [R.09] with
         details.  The TRB HOWTO Guide [R.0A] and Vpatch Directional Graph
         [R.0B] were updated to reflect the addition of
         ``asciilifeform_aggressive_pushgetblocks.vpatch'' to the TRB vtree.

0x02]: Complications and Obstacles

  0x020: In the very beginning of the month, ben_vulpes announced that he will
         be stepping back from his managerial responsibilities at Pizarro
         [R.0C].  mod6 will be interim manager [R.0D] until after the first
         week of September when BingoBoingo [R.0E] will take over the role

0x03]: Continuing Steps

  0x030: The Raw Transactions project is still on-going and will continue as
         time permits.

  0x031: There are two vpatches that are also in immediate consideration for
         emplacement into the main TRB vtree: ben_vulpes submitted a vpatch
         [R.10] to remove hash truncation from TRB logs;  mod6 has been running
         with this patch for some time, and works as intended.  mod6 submitted
         a vpatch [R.11] to fix the phexdigit array bug that was discovered.
         Work to get both of these into the TRB vtree will go forward as time

0x04]: Expenditures

  0x040: 0.02101750 BTC for colocation services at Pizarro [June] [R.12].
  0x041: 0.02083823 BTC for colocation services at Pizarro [July] [R.13].

0x05]: Conclusion

   The Bitcoin Foundation would like to bestow our sincerest thanks and
   gratitude to the contributors and community for its support and insight.
