Re: [Hyperledger Project TSC] proposal
Middleton, Dan <dan.middleton@...>
Before engaging in a consolidation project, I think it would be helpful to better define the overall goals. It is difficult to assess the merits of a design without the context of the problems it is intended to solve.
I propose that we first define objectives of the system. This needn’t be a document heavy DODAF-style requirements process. But completely forgoing such a process seems to make our decisions arbitrary.
Ultimately the success of this project will hinge on whether the software solves real problems for which there isn’t already a satisfactory solution. In particular my mind goes to distinctions between a distributed ledger and a replicated database before even getting to specialized features of transaction types. But rather than focus on that exclusively or attempt to list all possible objectives here, I will instead suggest that the first ‘sprint’ of the group be to define high-level objectives.
With those objectives defined we can then assess an architecture that selects components from the pool of contributions or creates new ones accordingly.
