Notable issues and merges on Bitcoin Core, LND and c-lightning.

Originally published by BitcoinOptech on newsletter #17

LND #1970: The AbandonChannel RPC method (only available in the developer debug mode) now provides additional information when users tell their node to abandon a payment channel (a method that can cause monetary loss if used carelessly). The additional information is enough to allow either restarting an open payment channel later or to prove that the program had enough information to make additional commitments to a now-closed payment channel.

C-Lightning #2000: This provides a large number of fixes and safety-related improvements how hash-timelocked-contracts (HTLCs) are stored in the database.
