Update on the Fabric v0.5 developer preview release (Sheehan)
Requirements WG (Oleg Abdrashitov)
Architecture WG (Ram Jagadeesan, via email)
The Arch-WG met last Friday along with the vHack and again on our regular slot on Wed.
We seem to be converging on a common functional definition of the consensus and smart-contract layers, that will allow us to have a truly pluggable consensus layer that accommodates different consensus algorithms.
As we develop the common definition, both the new fabric consensus proposal and the POET teams are testing it bottom-up to see if their designs can fit or can be evolved to meet the common framework.
We will try to have another off-cycle meeting next week to see if we can reach a definitive point on this topic.

Brian: The Linux Foundation has access to a 1,000 node cluster for CNCF and have ability to deploy jobs to it -- idea is that it might help with testing. Could wire into a regular process. Would like to turn performance testing into something we do for all projects. Anyone interested in working on performance testing? Please contact Brian or Chris directly.
