Very impressive responsiveness of the GUI and solid download speed.
works on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

CPU usage is nicely low. Overlay health seems great. btw why is the RemoteQueryCommunity not simply 1 extra message within the GigaChannelCommunity?

There are several reasons for putting RemoteQuery functionality in a separate community.

First of all, there is no versioning in communities, so if we would add some request/response functionality to an already existing community, old clients would not be able to respond. That would create a lot of “black holes” unable to answer queries during transitional period.

Secondly, RemoteQuery at this moment lacks functionality for actively gossiping stuff around. It’s gossip is on-introduction pull-based.

Most important, we still did not decide on an exact algorithm for pull-based gossiping of Channels content. The old GigaChannelCommunity allows us to safely experiment with pull-based gossip based on RemoteQueryCommunity, while still keeping the network alive and safe.
