Action Item Review

  • Hackfest preparation and updates (Todd)

    • Hackfest / October 3-4, Amsterdam (confirmed - details coming soon)

    • Also, there will be a Hackathon on October 1-2 hosted by ABN AMRO, Holland Fintech, and IBM NL.

    • Strongly encourage everyone to attend these technical events.

  • Review Hyperledger Release Taxonomy v0.3 and add semver versioning numbers (Brian and Chris)

    • Both Chris and Brian has made a few edits and updates, feel this is close to ready for adoption

    • CF:  Want to have a broader discussion around this to make sure everyone is on same page, especially feedback from the STL folks, as their approach is slightly different.

    • ACTION:  Chris to send out reminder to review, then next meet plan to vote.

  • Review and comment on Hyperledger-py proposal, Baohua to share proposal with Community to try to bring a few more project sponsors to it, as well as work on naming of the project. (Baohua Yang)

    • Skipped until next week, no quorum for a vote this week.

  • Communication tools (Brian/Todd)

    • wiki.hyperledger.org is now live; this is dokuwiki, supports markdown

    • Brian:  Anyone with an LFID can edit and create new pages.  Encourage everyone to test it out, kick the tires, and see if there are any major issues.  Otherwsie, we will start the process of migration.

    • CF:  Suggest to have a few editors that we can count on to keep tidy, highlight potential abuses, quality control, etc.

    • Arnaud:  Is migration automatic?  Brian:  No, don’t believe so -- we’ll engage with the Community and WG leads to map out a migration plan in 1 week.

    • Draft of the privacy section of the Requirements Document is on the wiki
