Second delay of constantinople? ... probably will be 3 or 4 more, this project have years of delay and maybe never reach the light ... thats a real possibility. Dont anger its a fact.

re-entrancy attacks on smart contracts are, in part, what enabled the DAO hack. The fact that Constantinople introduced a vacuum in which re-entrancy could run rampant in Solidity contracts is not a good thing. Especially for how long this update was in testnet

What this incident has shown is
- the entire stack needs to be analyzed when reviewing EIPs
- existing conditions & contract patterns being used have to be explored
- needs imagination / research across all levels, not just technical reviews and audits

Ethereum seems to be thorough in testing - shows responsibility. Either a lock-in or a solid update. Either way safer than a ‘fingers crossed’ release.
