[Qt] Debug window: replace "Build date" with "Datadir" #7732
The build date does only make sense for custom/self-compiled bitcoin-core versions because we are using static build-dates for our deterministic release builds.
Having a quick option to get the current datadir is much more valuable for debug purposes.
I could optional re-add the build-date for self compiled versions if someone brings up a concrete reason/value to keep it.
Optional this could be extended to open the datadir in the OS file explore when someone clicks on the label (Would require some platform dependent code: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3490336/how-to-reveal-in-finder-or-show-in-explorer-with-qt).
Awesome, ACK 4856f1d
This couldn't use the same functionality that we use to open the debug log?
OTOH we don't want to make it too easy to mess around in the data directory, certainly not while the application is running. Probably just showing it is good enough.
