Quarterly project updates

  • Pardha Vishnumolakala provided the Hyperledger Explorer update
    • Do you support Hyperledger Fabric 1.2 beta?
      • Not yet.
    • How has the collaboration with Hyperledger Sawtooth progressed?
      • There were a few calls right after the last quarterly update and then it went quiet.  The teams have connected back up last week and expect progress soon.
    • Anything missing in Fabric Node SDK?
      • Have a list that we can send out -- and think team has created Jira ticket.  Not necessarily issues, more just waiting on additional functionality.
      • Comment that 1.2 SDK work is wrapping up next week, roughly.
    • Reach out to Tracy/Ry on tips how to grow Contributor base
  • Next week:  Hyperledger Quilt update

Quarterly WG updates

  • Ram Jagadeesan provided the Architecture WG update
    • Idea behind ideal model is to describe how you expect system to behave using idealistic assumptions.  Describe in terms of a trusted 3rd party. Characteristics look like something that can process messages in a certain way.  Use as a basis of comparison and analysis of existing systems and implementations. Can use to drive requirements discussion.  It is a vehicle for uncovering assumptions and ultimately for providing a basis for analysis.
    • A request was made for projects to nominate folks to participate in the Architecture WG.
  • Next week:  Hyperledger Identity WG update

Hyperledger Labs

  • Tracy Kuhrt provided the update
    • A question was raised regarding opening up Jira for labs.
      • Discussion ensued leading to the outcome that it is ok to give Jira to the lab that is requesting it -- if it is a problem, it will not be an option for future labs.
      • A comment was made to ensure that we continue to do a good job of drawing distinction between projects vs. labs -- possibly the labs in Jira have a labs prefix, or create a separate instance just for labs.
    • VOTE to approve Ry Jones as a lab steward -- unanimously approved.
  • No labels
