2018 Hackfest Planning

  • Dubai - go/no-go?
    • Agreement to not hold the event in April.
  • Try to hold a Hackfest in Asia prior to the June Hackfest in Amsterdam?
    • Needs further discussion.
    • A suggestion was made to also consider a 1-day Hackfest after Consensus in NY.
  • Hackfest format discussion
    • Some in favor of having a roadshow to get regional folks up the learning curve vs. and entirely separate event focused on cross-project collaboration and hacking (some in favor of keeping them piggy-backed -- more time at fewer, longer events... less time traveling to many shorter events)
    • Agreement that much more agenda structure and objectives planning needs to be completed in advance of the actual Hackfest, not in unconference format on the first morning.
  • June 27-29 | Amsterdam (registration | draft agenda)

1.0 before leaving incubation

  • Thread
  • No current policy in place that Active status is required before a 1.0 release -- but, should this be added?
  • Concern that some of the smaller projects with smaller communities would be disadvantaged by requiring active status, even if they have a mature code base.
  • Comment that if code maturity is not required to exit incubation, then why is project maturity a requirement for 1.0 (they seem to be independent).
  • Concern that if an incubation project goes 1.0, it does send a signal to users that it will continue to exist, even if maintainers leave (so, maturity of the project community, process, etc. is important)
  • Comment that 1.0 triggers a lot of work from Marketing, security audit & license scanning, etc. and also gives some level of endorsement from Hyperledger (community maturity and active status is more desired)
  • Continue discussion via mailing list and rocket.chat -- will finalize in TSC call next week
  • No labels
