Release Status and Work Updates

  • Indy Node

      • Will split Sovrin specific tests in indy-test-automation into separate repo in sovrin-foundation org
        • Will break the Sovrin Jenkins pipelines further. Best fix is to setup GitHub Actions pipeline for Sovrin deb.
    • GitHub actions led by Kevin Griffin
      • We need a GHA pipeline for Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 20.04 so that we can test in both.
      • The Ubuntu upgrade must interoperate with the then-current 16.04 release, so that we can organize the "one node at a time" Steward OS upgrades.

    • New branching model led by Wade Barnes
      • Documenting plan (HIPE?)
