Other Business

  • Move to GitHub Issues from JIRA for indy-sdk, indy-node, indy-plenum
    • Activate issues, update README to mention history
    • Plan - Lazy Migration: Migrate current, likely to happen JIRAs to Issues as needed
      • NOTE: about 200 open issues on indy-sdk with a guess of about 50% to be moved
        • Even more open issues on plenum and node

    • Presentation (summary of what was presented on the Aries WG Call)
      • General agreement on the approach.
      • Comments from discussion:
        • The limiting factor will be the calculations and space needed by the prover to create the merkle tree interior nodes
        • What are the space/time trade-offs between repeating calculations per proof vs. caching the calculated tree?
        • Action: need some experimenting with the approach - compression and space/time for tree calculations
    • Please provide feedback on the proposed design (see JIRA: Indy-2365)
    • Do we need to update/release indy-node if transactions are the same but data is new?
      • Yes, but not much.  Mainly to verify the content of the data before writing to the ledger.

Future Calls

Next call:


  • Requirements questions:
    • IS-1099: anoncreds.prover_get_credentials_for_proof_req should return per-credential timestamp

Action items

  • PR to RFC #0019 to compare pack/upack to msgpack (Sergey)
  • Review the 61 cases of "unsafe" libindy calls and figure out if they are justified.
