SSB Log Entry 645

Pigeon Protocol Update: May 15th, 2020

Note to folks just tuning in: I do daily updates related to #pigeon-protocol - a project with similar goals to SSB.


Yesterday, I found a bug. Header entries were order dependent. A better implementation would allow authors to put the headers in any order, but there are some historical artifacts preventing that in the Ruby implementation.

To allow message headers in any order, I (think I) must perform signature verification while lexing messages, rather than at the time of ingestion.

This is still a WIP.


  • Finish lexer updates
  • Do the big sigil update
  • Get back to writing documentation
