Welcome to another edition of the Ethereum Cat Herders community update to bring you up to speed since the last update.

Ethereum 1.0

  • YOLO progress can be tracked here.
  • Besu is syncing to the YOLO v2 network, ran the current EIPs against the existing reference tests. No work started on v3 yet.
  • Geth is also syncing to YOLO v2, have regenerated the consensus tests with the name “Berlin”. For v3, they have an open PR for EIP-2718 and 2930. They’ve merged a PR for EIP-2565.
  • Nethermind is expected to join the YOLO testnet soon. Have made good progress on EIP-1559 and EIPs for YOLOv2.
  • OpenEthereum announced its participation in the YOLO v3 testnet.
  • YOLO v3 can be launched in 2–4 weeks, will be re-estimated on the next call.

  • EIP-2938: Account Abstraction — Ready for ‘Consider for Inclusion’, a decision will be made in the next ACD meeting.
  • EIP-2666: Precompiles and Keccak256 repricing — Shamatar proposed to consider this for YOLOv3. Discussion to be continued in the next meeting.
