The Working Group holds regular audio conferences every two weeks, have been stable on zoom for about a month or so. We have a revolving group of attendees of around 15-20 with a core group of 8-10. There are at least 2-3 new attendees in every session. Lots of discussion on Identity and Blockchain Identity in particular. Progress on the paper had been slow, has speeded up recently with a regular work-schedule.
Less than desirable progress on paper. We have started a regular cadence on editing the paper with volunteers in each section. We need Identity experts from incubated DLTs (Fabric, Sawtooth, Iroha, Quilt, Burrow) to show up, especially to work on current practice in the document. There may be some areas of overlap between the Architecture WG, in the Identity of nodes and creating a chain of trust to Identity of transactors- we are currently collaborating on this. Happily a lot of the regular attendees are members of both Working Groups.
Required Discuss briefly how active the working group mailing lists and chat channels are. Are there regular meetings being held? What work products are being worked on? Reports should list the work products created since your last report, along with the creation date of each. Conversely, if activity is minimal, discuss how the working group plans to address that - whether through seeking out new contributors/participants/leaders or planning towards a move to an End of Life state.
Required: What deliverables will you be working on in the upcoming quarter?
Required A healthy working group should survive the departure of any single participant. Is the working group growing/shrinking?
Optional Please provide any additional information that you feel would be useful for TSC to be aware.
