Event Reminders

  • Next Hackfest -- October 3-4 | Montreal (registration / agenda)

  • Q1 2019 -- tentative Hong Kong or Singapore -- any objections to week of March 4th?  (it was the most popular date pattern based on Doodle responses)

    • No objections

  • Schedule announced for Hyperledger Global Forum, December 12-15 (Basel, Switzerland)

    • Comment made that there is a duplicate agenda Fri/Sat

    • Todd noted that there are multiple sessions at each hour, and by having this the same both days allows people to select a different pattern of sessions on the second day

    • We’ll update verbiage on event website to make this clear

Quarterly project update

  • Jiahao Chen provided the Hyperledger Cello update

    • Any challenges that TSC should be aware of or could help with?

      • More dev resources to improve new features with Kubernetes

    • How is geographic diversity of Contributors and Maintainers -- primarily APAC?

      • 3 Maintainers in APAC, 1 Maintainer in US

      • Weekly meeting for Cello is Friday evening in China time (morning for US) -- could be early for the US-based devs

    • Since Cello is roughly based on Fabric, how closely do you follow that release?  Meaning, when will Cello be compatible with 1.2?

      • Right now.  However, the Kubernetes agent only compatible with 1.0.5.

    • Regarding project lifecycle, have you looked at what it would take to graduate to Active status?

      • Plan is to release 1.0 at end of the year and then look to go to Active status.

      • Arnaud -- more desirable to go Active first, and then 1.0.

      • Baohua -- noted, we’ll discuss is next Cello meeting.

    • Will Cello support other blockchains?  Would be looking for this as part of going Active per original scope of Cello Charter.

      • Baohua -- yes, already implemented support of Explorer and Composer.  Looking to support Helm chart, too, to support Sawtooth or Indy.

  • Next week:  Hyperledger Explorer update

Quarterly WG updates

Hyperledger Community Health WG

  • Tracy noted that they went through WG Charter based on discussion last week -- detailed here

  • Suggestion to make metrics part of the quarterly update reports, as opposed to having a separate thing trying to explain the metrics.

  • Suggestion to pair the concept of “do-ocracy” with any findings from Community Health.

Bug Bounty

  • No discussion this week.
