Prop140: Complete Consensus diffs / Merge GSoC project
Google Summer of Code finished over a month ago, and during this time I've been tidying up my code a bit and reading it for the merge. You will find it on github:
This ticket is for the sole purpose of following the merge process and its progress. But as always I'm on IRC and mail if you want to contact me directly.
I just rebased against master this morning. Nick and Sebastian have been reviewing my code over the summer, but of course more sets of eyes are needed.
The test coverage for the diff generation and application is fine (see test_consdiff.c), but there aren't any tests for the stuff I wrote to wire it into serving and fetching consensus diffs. Not really sure how to go about that, can't really promise I'd have the time to dive into it.
And regarding commit messages and changelog entries, I pretty much went with my instinct. Chances are they can be improved - the commit messages for future reference and the changelog entries for future release changelogs - so criticism is welcome.
