- Potential project in need of BFT orderers
Brian Behlendorf <bbehlendorf@...>
You really should use a different
status for deferred feature requests than "Closed", because
"decided not to implement this ever" is a closer inference from
"Closed" than "maybe someday". Jira is depended upon as a
future-feature-request tool by lots of other projects and asking
people to know it's differently treated at Fabric is another
cognitive burden to new contributors. At the very least I suggest
updating FAB-33 with a link to new work.

FAB-33 was closed along with hundreds of other items in an
overall cleanup of JIRA. Its closure does not indicate any
mothballing or abandonment of BFT efforts, in fact, there's
been considerably more activity in the space in the recent
months; particularly there are some ongoing efforts to develop
a golang BFT consensus library that is compatible with Fabric.
JIRA can be a good tool for tracking the progress of a
designed, approved, and mid-implementation item, but it's the
wrong place to look for future work. Future work is to be
submitted and approved as an RFC https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric-rfcs/
I would watch that space for updates.

We are leading a standardization effort within SunSpec.org
to utilize blockchain for securing the distributed power
grid in the US.
Fabric could be a good candidate for this effort but we need
BFT in the orderer nodes. It looks like this effort has
been mothballed to an extent:
What are the options for revitalizing this effort?
