Agenda

  • Action Item Review

  • WG Updates


Action Item Review

  • Hyperledger Release Taxonomy v0.3 -- TSC to review and vote (Brian and Chris)

    • Walked through document comments and resolved inside of google doc during the call

    • ACTION:  Chris Ferris to pull together thoughts on snapshot release and circulate via email

  • 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)

    • CF:  Hopefully people have had a chance to look, review, comment -- ready for approval, or do people want more time to review?  Any concerns?

    • Baohua:  Have added 4 more sponsors to this proposal.

    • ACTION:  Baohua to update the proposal to replace the discussion of REST/gRPC with language along the lines of “this SDK will follow the guidance of the SDK WG.”.

    • ACTION:  Naming should be Fabric-sdk-py, not Hyperledger-py

    • VOTE:  Unanimous approval.

  • EU Hackathon/Hackfest preparation and updates (Todd)

  • wiki.hyperledger.org migration plan (Brian/Todd)

    • Consensus was to test the wiki further over the next week and discussion migration in 9/15 call.

  • Communication tools (Brian/Todd)

    • Discourse instance is now up -- doing some final configuration and then will share with this group.

    • Brian:  suggest people also take a look at https://demo.rocket.chat/home to see if this would be a suitable Slack-alternative.


Reminder/Update on Collaboration around Blockchain Explorer

  • CF:  Blockchain Explorer project is up, added 3 maintainers; also put 2+2 rule on there.  Asked Ry to reduce to non-author core review (which means only 1 of maintainers needs to review and approve to merge) -- had to make this change, otherwise, we will wait forever to get code merged, instead of making progress.


WG Updates

  • Requirements WG (Oleg Abdrashitov)

    • Handling most financial use cases, need help on supply chain use cases

    • Started discussion on privacy

  • Architecture WG (Ram Jagadeesan)

    • No update

  • Whitepaper WG (Dave Voell)

  • Identity WG (Christopher Allen)

    • No update.

  • CI WG (Chris Ferris)

    • Behave tests are still having some problems in Fabric (both Jenkins and locally) -- maybe we remove until they can be stabilized.

    • Binh: Let’s disable in meantime

    • CF:  Will have Ramesh turn this off.


Actions

  • ACTION:  Hackfest preparation and updates (Todd)

  • ACTION:  Chris Ferris to pull together thoughts on snapshot release in Hyperledger Release Taxonomy v0.3 and circulate via email (Chris)

  • ACTION:  Discuss wiki.hyperledger.org migration plan in 9/15 TSC call (Brian/Todd)
