Hyperledger Iroha https://github.com/hyperledger/iroha
We released a couple of Release Candidate releases since the last report. New features and improvements:
Our chats are integrated now with the help of Nakayoshi bot https://github.com/soramitsu/nakayoshi and soon we are going to contribute to Hyperledger a bot capable of forwarding GitHub issues to JIRA bugs/issues, written in Rust: https://github.com/soramitsu/yozhik.
In general, we would like to start a formal process of requesting TSC for the release approval after we resolve some of the pending issues:
Number of active code maintainers: 12 (all currently represented by Soramitsu)
Coming closer to production version we see more and more activity in chats. People come interested in Iroha's simplicity and client libraries — we receive lots of feedback and feature requests that help us make a plan for Iroha development. Based on that we can tell that Iroha has many ways of development. Still, lack of production-ready version might be an obstacle for some projects and we hope to gain more users after we release v1.0.
We receive around 10 messages a day from people using Iroha in their projects and it is exciting to discuss the experience with them to see a greater picture. At the moment there are several users/ use case contributors that provided us with evaluation of Iroha for future release and we continue to receive feedback.
Currently, many issues in Jira are based on issue reports from outside contributors.

New: since the last report https://github.com/hyperledger/iroha-java has been released to Hyperledger (from https://github.com/Warchant/iroha-pure-java) and https://github.com/hyperledger/iroha-testcontainers (from https://github.com/Warchant/testcontainers-iroha)
It was a pleasure to meet the vast majority of TSC members in Hyperledger Global Forum and discuss current issues. The topmost setback was the diversity of community, which we are going to address in our plan, along with TSC request for the release.
