Project Health

Project health is green. We released Tags  v0.3.9.1 in support of Fabric 1.4. We use all of the following to help keep project health green: JIRA, RocketChat, email, Gerrit, Jenkins, Github, Zoom and Skype. Questions asked via rocketchat are being answered in a timely manner. For greater efficiency in this regard the FAQs page is updated with every release. Good mix of background of contributors from front-end to back-end however more community involvement is strongly encouraged and welcomed!


Maintaining contributor diversity.

Can you please comment on whether and how explorer has approached design for accessibility?

Can you please comment on whether you have made progress on supporting other HL stacks? I recall some in depth conversations in Toronto, but I don't see any updates on the topic since then.

Theoretically HL Explorer is compatible with any HL Fabric platform blockchain if configured properly.

I'm not aware of such design in our roadmap.

Hyperledger has a few other stacks including Indy, Iroha, Burrow, and Sawtooth.

It is highly desirable that all user interfaces are designed for accessibility. Please consider adding this to your roadmap.

Created Jira,  BE-642 - Jira issue doesn't exist or you don't have permission to view it.

I'll reiterate the point I made last time this came up. I think it is the responsibility of projects, or users of those other projects  to engage and help implement the integration.
