Project Health

We are still continuing working as 2 teams – Iroha 1 and Iroha 2. Both teams develop features, fix issues, talk to the community. Still, once in 2 weeks we meet for our community meeting (where anyone could attend). Iroha 2 is planning to show their first working version soon, Iroha 1 constantly improving the production-ready versions and implemented a couple of very nice features to increase the performance and experience. We have questions from the community on various integrated projects which we might need to discuss soon (e.g using Burrow or Ursa).

  1. e.g using Burrow

    Arnaud mentioned that he communicated with the Iroha community that Burrow has been deprecated. These may be the conversations that you are referring to. I wanted to make sure that this is the case.

    1. Yes, that is the case. We are currently thinking about how to approach this. 

  2. Sara Garifullina – That's great to hear that Iroha 2 is planning to show their first working version soon.  We're happy to coordinate with the team to help them share this on Hyperledger's channels.  And if they have interest in connecting with people who'd like to contribute, we could organize a contribution campaign around this.  Feel free to reach out if you'd like to talk more about that.

    1. Thank you, that would be great! As soon as we have everything in order, I hope we will all find the time to come up with something interesting for the community (smile) 

  3. Apologies for the late review. LGTM
