I'm not sure it is enough for you to state it in the forum.
You should include the licence reference with the sources.
However I'm no lawyer and I might be wrong...

Actually I think it may be beneficial to discount all feeds by 0.995 to give the market makers some breathing room and provide a buffer against down trends.
maybe  you should change this  rule at the wallet? discount the short wall price to 0.995*median price
because we'll disable feed price in the future right?

I would rather the delegates tweak this as necessary than introduce code changes with arbitrary numbers in it.

It seems most of the delegates are using the auto script from the Bitsuperlab, because frequent updating is hard to be maintained by manually doing it. However it means most of the price feeds will be the same, then what's the point of publishing price feeds by delegates? Why we don't just integrate one price feed in wallet?

Because the consensus logic needs the feed.... because single source is too much trust in one individual... because the plan is for delegates to have increasing variety of feed publishing policies.

How can I check which delegate is doing his job properly and who isn't?
How do I check what feed every delegate publishes?

Basically in simple terms and assuming GUI and windows how can I check the delegates?

www.bitsharesblocks.com is a good start. I'm not sure what is available through client GUI.

I hope BitShares Blocks can gather feed publishing statistics for all delegates including which feeds and frequency of update.

I understand BM's comments but I must say I am sympathetic to either having the feed built-in or at least having the official dev team take over the price-feed script. I think many of the delegates did not expect and are not prepared to maintain a price-feed script.  If for no other reason than ensuring some sort of consistent approach and quality control.  There doesn't seem to be any QC on the price feed that delegates provide and many are apparently not providing any.

What you said is so true, but the result is indeed no difference between using auto script and integrating it in wallet, if most of the delegates use the script.  Somewhere must be wrong, but I can't tell. I am afraid that price feeds for pegging is  only a treat to the symptom, not the underlying problem. Sorry I can't give you any constructive suggestion except for my worries.

You could always put a configuration to the script that assigns weight on each exchange's feed.
Each delegate might want to tweak the weights depending on his "believes"/policies or whatever.

I am aware of that. I found it very nice but it doen't tell me anything about who I should vote or unvote and why... Or does it?
