Items of discussion

  • Security reporting policy.
    • Github now fully supports handling security bugs the way we want it to work.
    • The only concern was directing security bug reports to security@ mailing list instead of Github issues.
      • Can be solve with training materials.
    • Christopher Ferris David Huseby and Ry Jones to create proposal to use it for security issues and a separate proposal for moving away from JIRA to Github issues entirely. 
  • Long Term Agenda - Framing
    • James Barry William Katsak to present part of their HGF talk (~25min)
    • Link to presentation TSC- Blockchains Become Composable - Final - Taekion 3-19-2020.pdf
    • What would a Hyplerledger stack look like today and tomorrow?
      • How can we decompose blockchains into constituent pieces to build up solutions for each workload.
      • We're already starting to see pluggable components breaking out (e.g. Transact and Ursa) but what about other pieces of blockchains?
      • Why don't we have well defined abstractions for consensus, crypto, block storage, smart contracts, etc...
      • Standardizing on API's would take serious effort and collaboration.

Quarterly updates

  • 2020 Q1 Hyperledger Grid
    • Comments by Duncan Johnston-Watt: concerned that there's a dependency on Splinter that is entirely governed by Cargill.
    • Splinter is Apache 2.0 licensed.
    • James Barry: multiple projects now depending on Splinter: Sawtooth, Grid, and Transact.
    • It looks like in this case these projects are built to run on top of Splinter instead of having a strong dependency on Splinter but the broader community is concerned that the dependency may become stronger.
    • This is something we'll probably have to look into closer.
