Hackfest Planning

  • June 27-29 | Amsterdam (registration | draft agenda)
  • October 3-4 | Montreal (registration coming soon)
  • Request each maintainer add a topic that requires hacking or discussion to the agenda, including a goal of what the desired outcome is during the hackfest
  • Add note about Hackfests being un-conference style
  • Is there a way to say in advance what they are interested in? Add a column to show interest.

Copyright/License Policy

  • The copyright line does not assign the copyright to Hyperledger. Original contributors maintain the copyright. Hyperledger Charter Section 13.A discusses how this works
  • Apache License template has the first line being a copyright line - this is used for attribution. We like to have a copyright notice in the file so that if the file is taken out of the repo to be re-used, it remains with the file, unlike a NOTICE file. Recommend attribution line at the top of the file.
  • Recommend that we take this through the legal committee
  • For legal committee: Is there a best practice for referencing a LICENSES file in lieu of the copyright notification at the top of a source file?
  • Hyperledger is not a legal entity. The legal entity is The Linux Foundation.
