Event Reminders

Sector Specific Working Groups

  • Will be assisted by Hyperledger staff, monitored by Governing Board via quarterly reports

  • As technical artifacts are produced, they will be made available to the TSC

  • Healthcare, Public Sector, and Social Impact WG will be under this new scheme

  • Mic requested the TSC remain on copy for updates of the Sector-specific working groups

Healthcare WG Chair update

Montreal Hackfest retrospective

  • Tracy hosted a session for new people; recommends this going forward

  • Sessions for bootstrapping were well attended (Indy, Crypto-lib)

  • Recommended that someone be willing to take new people and bring them up to speed or alternatively to provide details prior to Hackfest to help new contributors

  • Indy did a roadmap meeting; found to be good for recruiting new committers

  • It’s hard to keep people that aren’t in the room apprised of what is going on

Technical implications of EEA

  • Mail list thread

  • Staff of Hyperledger are now members of EEA and vice-versa; not the constituent members

  • Tracy will represent Hyperledger on standards discussions and report back

  • Hyperledger is open; EEA is closed. How will we resolve this tension?

  • A robust discussion followed.

  • Nothing in this relationship is exclusive.

  • Permissioned projects have a lot to learn from public projects, and vice versa

  • The biggest struggle all of the SIGs have is use case development and sharing.

  • EEA conformance is binary; unlikely Burrow can comply given the wire protocol specification

  • Hyperledger cannot be tied to specifications Hyperledger does not participate in the development of

  • Dan: This is a duocracy.
