Task force to look at GitHub for all Hyperledger projects

  • Chris Ferris made the suggestion to create a task force to look at using GitHub for all Hyperledger projects and evaluating what standard set of guidelines could be laid across all projects (i.e. enforcing DCO, code reviews, branching models, etc.) and to further enable collaboration between projects.
  • Brian noted that developer productivity and legal coherence should be the primary focus to optimize for
  • ACTION:  Chris to send a note to technical-discuss with thoughts and to solicit volunteers, and then bring a proposal back to the TSC
