Action Item Review

  • EU Hackathon/Hackfest preparation and updates (Todd)

  • Pull together thoughts on snapshot release in Hyperledger Release Taxonomy v0.3 and circulate via email (Chris)

    • CF:  Pushing to 9/22 TSC meeting.

  • wiki.hyperledger.org migration plan (Brian)

    • Brian:  Would  love feedback from others from TSC, minimal participation from technical community at this point.  Final call to TSC and technical community to put in some time this week reviewing -- create a test page, get a sense of the experience.

    • Dan M:  Can anyone with an LFID do this?  Brian:  yes.

    • CF:  Tried it out, no issues.  It supports markdown.

      • Brian:  There is a plugin that claims you can use a tag to make markdown work (when transferring from Github).

  • Communication tools (Brian)

    • discuss.hyperledger.org has been created (Discourse), typical forum, similar to public archives in lists.

    • Brian:  Would love to replace most, if not all, from mailman.  We want to simplify tools, not just add another.  In Discourse, you should be able to get notifications on new threads and also reply through your mail client.  We need to ensure that it also has search engine familiarity.

  • CF:  Proposed to cancel 9/29 due to Sibos and EU Hackfest.  Also proposed to shorten TSC call time to 60 min.

    • No objections.
