Full disclosure: I’m an amateur programmer at best.
Launch happens, everything is good then x amount of time goes by and a critical bug is discovered. All of the ‘seed’ servers have been switched off, the network is functioning as its own autonomous collection of nodes - how do you continue to develop a core network under those conditions?
What do you use to patch that network?
My brain just can’t figure out how something that is actively developed can also be autonomous. I also can’t figure out how you prevent other people from just pushing code at the same mechanism you use to patch the active network.
Thanks and take care.
