    • Architecture discussions are proceeding
      • Would like to lift much of indy-sdk to Aries, splitting into components, changing threading model, etc.
      • This is taking longer than expected, but is yielding useful results.
    • Moving from indy-connection protocol to aries-did-exchange protocol, hopefully in 2019
