SChernykh sets up P2Pool testnet in preparation for Monero v15 hardfork

SChernykh1 has set up a P2Pool2 testnet in preparation for Monero’s v15 hardfork3:

I’ve set up a testnet p2pool to check that everything works correctly during the v15 hardfork. Testnet will fork to v15 at block 1982800 (around 08:00 UTC on May 16th).4

According to the project maintainer’s public service announcement5, 3-4 testers will be enough for the next few days.

Testers should be able to compile Monero and P2Pool binaries from source67.

Instructions on how to join the test can be found on Github4.
