Required: Specify the project that this report covers
Required: Sum up the status and health of your project and the community in a few sentences. Consider this the TL;DR for the rest of the report. How is your community doing health-wise? Are questions being answered? Are contributors acting appropriately? Are there new contributors showing up?
Interest in Ursa is growing with 10+ attendees at the biweekly meeting with many more asking questions on the #ursa channel in Rocket.Chat and the ursa mailing list. Version 0.1 release is expected by end of March. We have a quite diverse group of maintainers and contributors, and both of these numbers are trending upward. We hope and anticipate that this will continue as we push to support more Hyperledger DLT platforms.
Required: If there are any specific issues that the TSC should be aware of or specifically address, then please call them out. If not, then it is helpful to state something like: "There are no issues at this time." When in doubt, it is better to include information or questions, rather than waiting.
Our biggest concern right now is getting a CI/CD pipeline going. Sovrin has created their own for Ursa for testing the features pertinent to them. We still need to figure out a preferred location for artifact delivery either.
Required: Regular software product releases are a sign of a healthy project. Reports should list the releases made since your last report, along with the release date of each. NOTE: If no releases were made, list the date of the most recent prior release.
Our first release (v0.1) is expected by end of March.
Required: Discuss briefly how active the project mailing lists and chat channels are. Are emails or user questions regularly read and responded to? What technical changes is the project working on? Is there new development happening, or just bug fixes? NOTE: If the activity is minimal, verify whether or not there are at least three active maintainers who can step in when needed, and include this information in the report.
Required: A healthy project will often be working towards a common goal, or have a shared understanding of what is being done next - even if individual contributors have their own "itches". What are the main features planned? What releases are planned? Are there any specific efforts or branches of development underway? This does not need to be described in technical detail. Conversely, if the activity is minimal, discuss how the project plans to address that - whether through seeking out new contributors, maintaining in a dormant but available state, or planning towards a move to a Deprecated (and ultimately End of Life) state.
Required: Please include the maintainers that were added since your last report. This information will allow us to track the diversity and growth of the maintainers of the project. NOTE: If no maintainers were added since your last report, provide the list of existing maintainers.
Current active maintainers
Required: A healthy project should survive the departure of any single contributor or employer of contributors. Healthy projects also serve the needs of many parties. Include information on the number of unique organizations currently contributing to the project. NOTE: The contributions do not need to be source code.
We have contributors and maintainers primarily associated with both Indy and Sawtooth. We are actively looking for contributors with deep knowledge of Fabric and Iroha. If this is you, and you are interested, please join us!
Optional: Please provide any additional information that you feel would be useful for TSC to be aware.
