I've been searching for this answer and haven't been able to find one.  I also posted this question in the Pool thread, but nobody has responded with an answer.

When looking at someone's p2pool node.  Some of them say Version: 13.4-57-gdfad3cd.  And others will say something like: Version: 13.4-57-gdfad3cd-dirty.  What does the
-dirty represent?  Has code been changed that needs to be verified?

I just want to make sure that if i'm going to mine in a new node that there isn't any funny business.  All I can seem to narrow it down to is certain nodes have custom front ends and those all say dirty. 

Any response would be appreciated.

Thank you

I must have missed your question in the p2pool thread.  It has to do with a git command.  The version info is pulled from you local git repo of p2pool.  Basically, in __init__.py, it makes a call like this:
Code:
git describe --always --dirty
As you rightfully suspect, if you've added files to your local repository (for example, a custom front end), then git will return back that your repository is "dirty".

Thanks for the response. If I wanted to design my own front end. Is there a way to make changes and not have a dirty version?
