Ethereum Cat Herders Update #5
Hello everyone! The ECH weekly update is here with our progress over the past week and updates from the ECH call. We hoped to publish an ECH update every week and share the progress on the tasks being performed by the group, but we’ve decided to have the group call bi-weekly. Therefore, it would make more sense for us to publish a bundled update every other week.
- Hudson Jameson talked about Ethereum cat Herders at EthCC.
- Brett Roberston will be giving a presentation at Edcon in Sydney in April to help introduce the Ethereum Cat Herders and speak to what we are working on.
Support Ethereum All Core Devs community project management here.
- Ethereum Cat Herders Meeting #7
With other updates and discussion, issues reported at ECH GitHub #12 were discussed. The team is working on documentation.
2. Ethereum Cat Herders Meeting #8 is proposed on Tuesday, March 26th, 2019 at 14:00 UTC. Agenda
3. Ethereum All Core Devs Meeting #57
The next meeting is scheduled on Friday 15 March 2019 at 14:00 UTC. Agenda.
- Still in the process of identifying the group to do the full audit. Speaking with couple groups about proposals.
- WhiteBlock is updating their Gitcoin grant to reflect their work efforts geared towards ProgPoW.
- Moving ProgPoW into the Istanbul Hard Fork #11. Proposal of an EIP to be added to the agenda of All Core Dev meeting on Friday.
- Coindesk published an article about Ethereum’s ProgPoW Proposal: An Expensive Game of Whack-a-Mole.
- PhoenixMiner (a popular Ethash miner) has released support for ProgPoW in their latest version: https://www.reddit.com/r/EtherMining/comments/b0aq1q/phoenixminer_42a_beta_released/ but they currently support only the BCI ProgPoW version may be adaptable to the ETH version.
- You can follow the live discussion about ProgPow on our Gitter channel.
Note: All articles/blogs mentioned here are not necessarily published by Cat Herders. It is just for awareness.
The first internal call was scheduled on 13 March 2018 to discuss the future Hard Fork Coordination. We brainstormed with various stakeholders including some members of the ECH group and Boris Mann around the requirements of the task. You may find issues added here. The scope and processes on how to proceed require more clarification.
