#3687 closed Enhancement (fixed)

The V=XXXX key/val pair in our DHT messages seems to have no purpose

Description

I know of no client software that uses it, and it's not listed in the DHT spec. All in all it appears to be a minor waste of code and bandwidth, and should be removed.

The v extension is for debugging dht. http://www.rasterbar.com/products/libtorrent/dht_extensions.html

It's still available, and implemented in third party dht.c if you want to have it. https://github.com/jech/dht/commit/6e32ed06aa79432fd4def392fbbd2989ea8ceea4
