      • Stable to Master merge - ready and being reviewed by Wade.
      • Ubuntu 20.04 Upgrade
        • Can we close the RMarsh PR in favour of later PRs?  Need to get a status of later PRs
          • Richard is indicating that it is done, but not clear. Tests are running under GHAs.
          • No CI so not clear how that is indicated.
          • Should we be merging to trigger CI/CD?
    • Indy-Plenum
      • CI for Indy Plenum - merged

        • Waiting on Wade for where to put the artifacts - decision Hyperledger Artifactory - to be setup today/tomorrow.
        • Robin is on vacation through April 20.  May need to try to get someone else to work on this. Robin to add comment on GitHub issue with status.
        • In PR is ability to run the GHAs off different branches.
      • Stable to Master merge - Merged
    • Indy-SDK
      • CI/CD for Indy-SDK looks good – ready, Wade to review - waiting for Jenkins to sign off on the build (happening as we speak)
      • Jenkins/GHAs to run in parallel for a bit, while the GHA are finalized.
        • CI – deprecating that sooner than later
        • CD – need the right triggers to fire (e.g. if PR merges to master and updates the tag, publishes artifacts)
    • Sovrin Release - Wade Barnes
      • Working on CI/CD - Resource found for that, starting soon - Devin Smith - contractor through Sovrin
      • Dev environment fixed, build environment fixed, tests fixed, working on the Ubuntu 20.04 upgrade
      • Should be done soon.
    • indy-test-automation – had been working, but it is dependent on the Sovrin packages that are not made yet.
    • Need to research the publishing of the artifacts from GHA to the Sovrin repos
      • Before – indy and sovrin artifacts were in Sovrin repos
      • To Be Done – indy artifacts will be hosted on Hyperledger Artifactory; Sovrin on Sovrin repositories
  • Next Indy-Node release – need CD completed.  Once done, then we can plan the final steps to produce a release.
    • Wade to work on a checklist for what is needed, and who is doing what for the initial release.
  • Indy Contribution Campaign
    • Timing – HGF coming up –  timing perhaps best is after HGF
    • Video – 3 month lead time on that – Digital Identity
    • Look at second half of the year – but we need to get started
  • Indy DID Method Spec organizing
    • Adding to the NYM transactions (write and read) a "diddocContent" item, instead of putting it into an associated ATTRIB
      • Per Sergey K – may want to use ATTRIB storage for the item instead of adding it to the NYM on the ledger
      • Old Indy-SDK epic, old Indy epic, (must login to see epics)
  • Status of indy-sdk CI/CD

    • Hyperledger standard Maintainers document?
    • Use GitHub groups instead of CODEOWNERS? Ry set this up. We just need to approve his changes.
  • Sovrin Network Upgrade process: 
    • Inputs: New CI/CD, OS Upgrade, Post Feb. 2020 functionality (e.g. Rich Schema), indy-crypto vs. ursa-crypto
    • Today: 16.04 with no post Feb 2020, Functionality, mix of indy-crypto/ursa-crypto
    • Release 1: Another 16.04 using the new CI/CD code but no code changes plus the Post-Feb. 2020 changes
      • Concern: Have the new GHAs been made ONLY for 20.04?  Not supposed to be, but TBD.
    • Release 2: Ubuntu 20.04 matching Release 1. One at a time – create new 20.04 node, remove their 16.04 node, add their 20.04 node
