Meeting Topics

  • Update: GitHub actions led by Kevin Griffin Wade Barnes
    • CD: Hyperledger Debian repo is available and being used
      • Package artifacts
      • Secrets managed
    • Indy-Plenum
      • CI for Indy Plenum - merged
        • Being redone because of missing tests
      • CD for Indy Plenum - ready but not merged 
      • Stable to Master merge - Merged
      • Ubuntu 20.04 tests
        • Now mostly running – had been missing the upgrades necessary to run the tests
        • 1 test is failing, 1 split test is cancelling – details to go to Renata (Wade to provide)
          • Skipped tests – should verify why and make sure that is OK – Wade to review.
        • Task: Eliminate the pinned dependencies as possible – Renata's team to look at that
          • Requires code changes and additional tests
    •  Indy-Node
      • Rinse and repeat the Plenum work
      • Stable to Master merge – still being reviewed (Wade); waiting on a response to a question (Renata)
    • 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 failure is preventing merging – all tests must pass
        • Can someone look at that?  Wade reviewed and not seeing the issue.  ABSA has looked at it, but don't know the issue.
          • ?? To be looked at...
      • 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
        • Dev environment is working and new docs
        • Working on the Plenum side because it was blocking him
          • Discovered problems with plenum upgrade – many failing tests – mostly fixed
        • Jenkins
      • Ubuntu 20.04
        • Upgrade from indy-crypto to ursa-crypto - done
        • Upgrade Python - done 
        • Rinse and repeat from Plenum for dependencies
    • 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
  • 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
  • Status of indy-sdk CI/CD
  • 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 1: Ubuntu 20.04 that runs with today's nodes.
      • Proposal: Call the new version 1.13.0 that is tested ONLY on Ubuntu 20.04, MUST be compatible with 1.12.4
      • One Steward at a time – 1) remove their 16.04 1.12.4 node, 2) create new 20.04 device, 3) install 20.04 node, 4) add their 1.13.0 node
      • Cannot affect consensus – we'll verify that as we go.
      • Short term request of Stewards – get ESM from Canonical
    • Release 3: Post Feb. 2020 changes
