My efforts this month targeted principally round restructuring the core logic that can be shared between Grin++ and LTC. This includes all the logging, serialization, crypto, error dealing with, and customary knowledge buildings (headers/blocks/txs).”
“Most of this was already written for Grin++, however since some elements have been hurriedly coded on a good 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 exams, and including higher documentation.”

Burkett moreover goes onto write and format his priorities going ahead and into January. These embrace, deciding on a construct methodology for the challenge, doubtlessly a ‘simplified model libbitcoin’s construct system’ in addition to defining fashions, fields and serialisation formatting of headers, kernels and signatures. Additionally on the todo checklist for January is to maneuver ‘database implementations over to libmw-core, cleanup to match new requirements, and add full exams’. Moreover work will start on a mechanism that might permit for quicker syncing of the Grin chain, one thing that can lay the bottom work for Litecoin Core’s proposal.

That work may be adopted because it occurs within the following repos LibMW-Core and LibMW-ltc
