+1. Apart from Specialty which is American :)
On 6/11/19 9:55 AM, Shawn Amundson
I'd like to see more community involvement in these
decisions and proposals.
That's literally why I sent this email. :) No decisions have
been made yet. This was based on conversations here and on TSC
calls and private feedback to us, and is a proposal.
The following top-level categories would probably work
- Distributed Ledgers
Distributed ledgers would be categorized by their ability
to run general smart contracts. Libraries would be code
libraries meant to be used by other projects. Specialty would
be a projects with a specific focus. Tools would be app-level
projects that don't contain business logic.
It could break down like this:
- Aries - wallet/edge
- Grid - supply chain
- Indy - identity
- Quilt - interop
I'd possibly move Quilt to Libraries and Composer to Tools but
I'm pretty OK with the rest of the above.
Dear TSC and others,
With the recent growth in the Hyperledger
greenhouse, and continued expansion anticipated for
the foreseeable future, it's time for an update to our
greenhouse graphic and related project taxonomy. I
requested the help of the LF Staff and Marketing
Committe Chairs and they came back with two graphics
that accommodate the following needed improvements:
- Updated the taxonomy for clarity and precision.
Projects will now be classified as frameworks,
components, templates and tools
instead of just frameworks and tools. We made a
guess as to where each project would like to be,
realizing the boundaries can be fuzzy. If you
feel they should be grouped differently let's
discuss that, but we can accommodate some movement
within the layout.
- We placed in some blank generic logos to
accommodate anticipated expansion. When we
publish this formally we will remove the generic
logos; it's merely intended to show where we'd
- Illustrate a broader view of the various ways to
participate in the greenhouse by including a sort
of foundation floor in this greenhouse to include
Labs, as well as a community section including
WGs, SIGs, Meetups and HGF. If this results in a
graphic that's too tall or busy for, say, a slide
in a presentation slide deck, this section can be
moved to its own slide, which is why we show it
with and without. It's anticipated that we'd make
each of the individual components here look better
before final push, perhaps by coming up with logos
for each or at least different colors.
- Emphasize the frameworks, as they are likely the
first projects we want people new to HL to know
about, and they pull together many of the other
pieces as components. We still need better
taglines for each framework but those can be
improved over time.
- We removed the taglines for the other projects
for visual simplicity; perhaps on the website when
showing this graphic we can have a roll-over that
shows more depth on each project before shooting
you over to the project's particular home page.
- Remove the greyed out other LF projects and
"Community Stewardship and Technical, Legal,
Marketing, Organizational Infrastructure" copy to
avoid this looking like a sea of small print as
the greenhouse grows.
Please see the revised graphics below. We invite
you to share your comments on this thread or on the
call Thursday, and either then or in the near future
a vote reflecting the TSC's acceptance.
I didn't turn this into a Wiki page just yet as I
didn't want anyone to be confused that this was
anything other than a draft, but if I'm being too
cautious on that front and someone else fels it
would be useful to do that, feel free.
We'll look at checking in the source materials
for this chart and the logo into the wiki or GH
