There is already one prototype implementation of the Pest spec available for use and testing. Codenamed "Blatta" ("cockroach" in Latin), this prototype is written and maintained by thimbronion (WOT: thimbronion) and implements a large subset of the current spec. This prototype is a work in progress and is updated regularly. For more detailed information, please review the Blatta release notes. There also exist channel logs for the proto-pestnet if you are interested in following along, although due to the not 100% reliability of the network and logger the main discussion around Pest development is happening in #asciilifeform on dulapnet1 (mirror).
This signature in no way implies any endorsement or guarantee of the software contained within the tarball, it is simply to denote that the tarball contains no more and no less than the result of pressing the patch of the version stated. That being said, billymg does in fact run this software himself and quite enjoys using it.
All patches are signed by thimbronion and if you are in possession of a working vtron you can download the patches (and signatures) above and press the tree yourself. ↩
