Finalize template to standardize and launch WGs

Hyperledger Composer request to go 1.0

  • Continued discussion around Composer going 1.0 prior to active status (and whether 1.0 should focus on quality of code and project status should focus on maturity of community -- or, if overlap exists between the two).
  • Suggestion to defer 1.0 vote until May once license scanning and security audit are underway, which will give time for the technical community to focus on bringing more developers into the Composer community to support other frameworks, which would help get it to active status.
  • There were no objections to starting license scans and security audits for projects that are _approaching_ a 1.0 (prior to formal approval of 1.0 status).

Quarterly WG updates

  • Mark Wagner provided the Performance and Scale WG update
    • Brian noted that from time-to-time LF Projects get offers for test infra, would benefit us to have some community process of how to apportion test resources.
    • A question was raised regarding the timeframe for when doc worth publishing?
      • Hoping for within next two months, ideally
  • Next week:  Whitepaper WG update

Quarterly project updates

  • Dan Middleton provided the Hyperledger Sawtooth update
    • A question was raised regarding PoET and specialized hardware.
      • Dan noted that many people have opted to use simulator version, wanted to make sure that there wasn’t a vendor dependency.
      • Have people started porting to different hardware?  No, not yet.
  • Next week:  Hyperledger Iroha update
  • No labels
