Hackfest Planning

Quarterly project updates

  • Eugene Mininbaev provided the Hyperledger Iroha update
  • Are there plans to integrate with other projects?
    • No concrete plans yet, but either Composer or Explorer could be useful.
  • What is the status of interaction with the rest of the Hyperledger Community?
    • Have been using Telegram and Gitter, as such, missing things on rocket.chat -- TSC made the suggestion to stop using other channels and focus solely on the formal Hyperledger channels 
    • TSC made the recommendation to engage with Community more at Hackfests, via TSC call, WGs, etc.
    • Have been publishing issues to try to attract new contributors -- open to help/advice on further growing the Iroha community.
    • A comment made that it is import to have a diverse set of not only Contributors, but also Maintainers.
    • A request was made for more input from Iroha into the Architecture WG -- let the WG know if there are any barriers to participation that can get resolved.
    • The TSC reiterated that they and the Community are here to help -- want to get more cross-project collaboration, grow diversity of committers and maintainers, etc.

  • Simon Stone provided the Hyperledger Composer update
    • A question was raised about the license headers.
      • Tracy has been running fossology scans -- many files didn’t have license headers -- so, going through to resolve all those.
    • A question was raised about the security audit.
      • Dave Huseby met with Nettitude yesterday, on track.
    • A comment was made that contributor diversity appears to be going down -- let TSC and Community know how we can help.
      • A comment was made that contribution does not always have to be code -- documentation, contributing to testing, etc. are all important.
      • A suggestion was made to take a set of bugs in issue tracker and mark them with a special “bite sized” tag for good learning experiences to attract new devs.
  • Next week:  Hyperledger Indy update

Quarterly WG updates

  • Nate DeNiro provided the Healthcare WG update
    • 25-30 people have been attending calls.
    • Healthcare WG was really helpful in prep for HIMSS in March with demos and talking in our booth
    • A comment was made that there seems to be a struggle to define what the WG wants to achieve -- maybe revisit charter as a guiding principle.
  • May 10th:  Technical WG China update

Discussion:  Public Sector WG

  • Proposal
  • Inclusive of social impact?  Not likely, even though there is some grey area.
  • Focus on usages, PoCs, Pilots?  Or, also a role for informed policy?  Want to stay away from anything that hints at lobbying.
  • Please take discussion to mailing list -- we will revisit this topic next week.
  • No labels
