Hello everyone! I am back with updates of Ethereum Cat Herders (ECH) over the week. Before we get started with the updates, I would like to take a moment to thanks all for tremendous response to . Starting with the reason for birth of this group, Ethereum Cat Herders is a group of experienced project managers which are brought in, to offload the core developers Project Management work and they can continue with their development work. With the growth of Ethereum blockchain, not only project development has grown but a lot of co-ordination and project management work also requires attention to avoid chaos. That’s where ‘The Ethereum Cat Herders’ chip in. Group is still exploring scope but at present, ECH is the “PM group” and not the “PR Group” for Ethereum blockchain. However, defining scope is still a work in progress, that may or may not include “PR” in future. In either case, Ethereum is decentralized but not disorganized.


Code of Conduct

Those who are following us on might have witnessed a small disturbance over a moderation issue on a Reddit post. An aggravated user showed up with abusive and inappropriate behavior, and hence banned (thanks @jpitts) from AllCoreDevs and EthCatHerders channel. Gitter channels are meant to have constructive discussion and share feedback, please maintain the sanctity. Here is the guideline (thanks @CPSTL). It applies to all ECH community/social channels

As per my understanding, every individual is contributing in its best way to take Ethereum community forward. We should respect their hard-work, and stand by them at times of “alien attack”. That’s what community is for.
