Hyperledger Besu Active Status Proposal

Grace Hartley
 

Hi TSC,
 
The Hyperledger Besu team would like to propose the project be moved from Incubation status to Active status. 
 
We have drafted this proposal on how we believe we meet the requirements on this page on the Wiki: Hyperledger Besu Active Status Proposal.
 
We look forward to your thoughtful engagement around this matter.
 
Thank you,
Grace and the Hyperledger Besu team

Hi all,
I won't be able to chair the call this week and neither will Dan so I'm cancelling this week's call.
Please, take the time to file the Q4 TSC reports that are due and contribute to the open issues/topics on the wiki so we can make progress towards closing them.

Dan Middleton taking on the new role of vice-chair of TSC

Arnaud Le Hors
 

Hi all,
On yesterday's TSC call, the TSC adopted the following resolution (https://wiki.hyperledger.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=20021855):

        Add a vice-chair who can take over when the chair is not available. The first member to win the election is chair, the second is vice-chair.

I proposed to implement this resolution immediately which, based on the results of the last TSC chair election, would make Dan Middelton the vice-chair for the current term. However, Dan not being on the call due to travel, the TSC decided to confirm with him first whether he'd be willing to serve as vice-chair.

I'm happy to say that he is! So, we now have Dan Middleton as vice-chair of the TSC, effective immediately.

Cheers.

The archive of minutes has been copied to the new wiki

Ry Jones
 

You might notice the wiki now has all of the TSC minutes and recordings, as available. There were a few meetings without recordings or minutes.

I have found this assists finding old items much easier.

Subject:        [EXTERNAL] [Hyperledger TSC] TSC election suggestions
Sent by:        tsc@...




Hi all,
The HL staff involved in administering the recent TSC election recently met to discuss things we might want to do differently next year, as well as some suggestions we'd have for the TSC, to make next year's election even smoother.
1) It's clear there were some members of the community who felt underinformed about the election timeline and process.  The Hyperledger Charter, section 4.II.a, says "The TSC shall approve the process and timing for nominations and elections held on an annual basis."  We had created the 2019 Election wiki page and published a timeline there, and announced it on TSC calls, but could have done a better job in ensuring TSC acceptance and buy-in of the process and communication around it.  Next time, we suggest that the process & timeline be proposed by the HL staff to the TSC and affirmed by a vote, so that the TSC can ensure and represent to the wider community how it's happening and why it's trustworthy.
2) Along with getting TSC formal approval, it would be helpful to have two or three volunteer election observerswho are not running for the TSC, with whom we can CC on every election-related conversation we have or action we take, who can help us with the voter list, and with whom we can share the results from Condorcet.  Apache has election monitors for this purpose.  Those monitors, of course, will not have access to the raw votes, just as HL staff do not.
3) Perhaps the biggest source of public confusion, and the greatest amount of work for HL staff, was in creating the list of eligible voters from the myriad of different systems for collaboration, and then de-duping and correcting for invalid addresses.  The charter describes an eligible voter very loosely: "anyone in the technical community that contributes code, documentation or other technical artifacts to the HLP codebase".  It doesn't tightly define "codebase" nor does it say how much of a contribution is merited, so a one-line edit to the wiki or reporting a bug would qualify.  We are happy to see the TSC looking at redefining who's allowed to vote.  In Apache, only actual members of the ASF can vote on their board, and there is always a known good email address for reaching someone, and that persists even when individuals change jobs/employers.  In addition to other criteria like "easy to describe" and "perceived as fair and hard to game", we would also ask that "easily resolvable to a working email address" be a part of the decision on who's eligible to vote.  Any substantive change to eligibility requirements should also be turned into a proposed amendment to the Charter.
4) Regarding nominations: we recommend moving back to public nominations posted to the TSC list, backed with wiki page from the nominee, rather than collecting by form then posting to the wiki at the start of the election.  We also recommend doing away with formally nominating someone else to vote.  There were three candidates nominated by others who withdrew their candidacy as they weren't aware they were being nominated.  And we provided no window between the time we took nominations and the start of the election to verify.
5) Timing.  There were some aspects of the election with tight turn-around times during a month, August, when many people are on vacations or otherwise distracted.  It may be better to push TSC elections out a month or two; perhaps, use September to do the data collection to determine who's allowed to vote and take nominations, and then October to conduct the vote over a slightly longer period, to maximize potential participation.
Hope this is helpful,
Brian

TSC Agenda for Oct 3, 2019

Arnaud Le Hors
 

Hi,

I posted the agenda for this week's call:
https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/TSC/2019+10+03+TSC+Agenda

I don't know how far we'll be able to go down the list of proposals but I tried to put first some that don't seem to be controversial in hope to get a bunch of these behind us.
I also note that reports from the Architecture WG and the Fabric project are due.

Thanks.

Burrow Relaunch - The Boring Blockchain

Silas Davis
 

Hello TSC list,

As I mentioned at Burrow's last quarterly update I believe Burrow is punching below its weight due to a mixture of lack of awareness and lack of good docs.

We have finally completed a significant docs writing and re-writing exercise. The fruits of which can be found here (source in /docs on github):

https://hyperledger.github.io/burrow

I have also drafted a (rather long) blog post that aims to do two things:

1. Provide a brand/vision/philosophy for Burrow that is easy to understand and engaging (and hopefully representative)

2. Present our core features as part of a coherent story all in one place

The post is here:


I am particularly interested in feedback from the wider TSC list on three points:

1. Does the branding philosophy and vision of Burrow outlined work for you? Does this give a clearer idea why you might choose Burrow? Can it be improved?

2. Do you have any suggestions on improving our new documentation which we could implement in a less than an hour?

3. Do you see any opportunity to add some connective tissue between features in the in detail section.

I have already spent more time than I intended on this. I welcome feedback but I also do not want the perfect to be the enemy of the good. I am about to do a thorough proof-read myself, but if you notice anything please comment on gist.

Regarding 2, if anyone has the time to walk through any of our docs to check the steps work as advertised then we ❤️ you.

I am hoping to get this live before maintainer's summit but we'll see how it goes. Once it is up retweets and sharing will be very much appreciated.

Vale Marmota!

Silas



Proposed Hyperledger PSWG Agenda for Tuesday 01-October-2019, 9 AM EDT

mark wagner <mwagner@...>
 

<tl;dr>
We will hear about a soon to be proposed project, called Hyperledger Beam, at least for now...


Hi
To view the official calendar invite please go here:
https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/HYP/Calendar+of+Public+Meetings
hat do we need from you?

Support, we are a up and coming start up and we are looking to introduce a test-net written in Python for merely testing purposes. If anyone has the time to pitch in please do not hesitate to e-mail us back so that we can proceed to implement Hyperledger Beam

As reminder the call is open to everyone and all are encouraged to attend. You do not need to be a member of Hyperledger to participate.

We will use the Zoom number -  https://zoom.us/j/4034983298


Topics we should cover:

1) Antitrust notice -- Please make sure you are in compliance with the notice before the meeting

2) Welcome  / introductions for new folks on the call

3) A discussion of an upcoming Hyperledger Project proposal, currently dubbed Hyperledger Beam. From the author:

Below you will see an PDF attachment on what Hyperledger Beam is and with your support we hope to be able to bridge the gap that allows organizations to set up a secure and scalable blockchain at the click of only a few buttons. Our methods would easily allow for mass adoption in a scalable, secure, fee-less, privacy controlled environment. After reading the PDF introduction we encourage you to read the below 2 medium links.



The first one being a introduction to out MVP which allows for blockchains to scale and be secure at the same time, while the second one talks more about how other projects are trying to achieve the same results as we are and their flaws.
 
4) The Working Group Task Force seems to recommending killing all Working Groups and looking to reboot a few select WGs as a Tasks Force. We could potentially switch to a SIG.

https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/TF/Working+Group+Task+Force

Be sure to click through the sublinks. Feel free to add comments, etc.

5)  Other topics ?
  Please feel free to "reply all" if you have anything.
