        • PRs to be merged - lint, and latest image, structure change for Artifactory - review for merge assigned to Wade
      • Security issue around Pygments – but it is only used in the docs, not in the code.
    • Indy-Node
      • Status: 
        • Main focus of work
        • Philipp created docs on new Indy node network, several other PRs
          • Catch-22 – update base images for builds, but the images need the changes to be tested. Oh my...
            • Pull images, make images updates local, push locally
        • Moments ago – Robin: CI working with all but one test working.
    • indy-test-automation
      • Status:
        • Relies on docker-on-docker, which is challenging; working on getting it running
        • Circular dependencies, even for indy-node testing (trying to pull in post-release Sovrin dependencies)
          • Breaking the dependencies could break some tests
          • Idea is to move those tests to later in the process
    • Sovrin Release - Wade Barnes
      • Status: <To be completed>
      • ETA: ??

  • Issue with Indy Sandbox BCovrin Test
    • Update from Wade Barnes
    • No ledger corruption (pheww...)
    • Issue tied to RocksDB and/or Python Wrapper that was deployed
    • By updating one/downgrading the other got the ledger running again.
    • Issue not just RocksDB/Wrapper (version) but also how they are used in the plenum startup code, yet the latest Read Ledger code either one works
      • TBD: What is different in the Read Ledger code and the Indy startup code?  Digging into that to see if there is not a hidden issue
      • Read Ledger is a script in Indy Node to read the ledger offline.
  • Update: Indy to participate in the Linux Foundation Grace Hopper Day (Oct 1, 9-5am PT).
    • Hyperledger accepted as a group: Indy and Fabric

      • Perhaps a number of the did:indy effort.
    • Provide 1 project representatives who are also maintainers of your project (e.g. can merge PRs), preferably women.
  • Indy Contributor Campaign
    • Perhaps a foundation for this:
      • Indicio and Hyperledger talking about a joint venture for Indy certification
      • Perhaps an Indy workshop to get them through initial questions
    • Need a guide to setup dev environment, change a line of code, test locally, submit PR.
      • With the CI/CD to cover a lot of the details.
