    • Non-technical contributors to become maintainers

      • Restrictions for maintainers that are non-technical can be recognized
      • Vijay and Sajida have been added as maintainers based on their product leadership
      • We should do a poll in Rocketchat for: (1) what is stopping you from contributing to Besu (2) why are you deterred from contributing to Besu? 
      • Could we incentivize contributors to create more tutorials in a repo for the community? We have quorum-quickstart-dev, but could there be more developer tools for demonstrating privacy/permissioning upon deployment (we need more contributors!)
    • Experimental Bonsai trie benchmark results

      • Karim update: Took over Bonsai work since Danno left
      • Since March 20, we had two mainnet nodes syncing 
      • 1TB vs .5 TB without Bonsi trie improvements 
      • Force node without pruning - 12TB 
      • 50% improvement in storage usage with bonsai enhancements 
    • Post Rayonism update
      • Rayonism went well! 
      • Besu as an execution client was the most stable execution client; top performer! 
      • On Nocturne testnet, we did some things with type transactions, but had very little to do 
      • We integrated with Teku/Prysm/Lighthouse (couldn't get Nimbus up in time) 
      • Had really good results with all four on the second trial
      • Working on getting Besu broader adoption as an execution environment; de facto execution engine for Teku

      • Besu is an ideal client for ETC miners but requires some improvements/ fixed issues
