Hyperledger Grid: https://www.hyperledger.org/projects/grid
Health is good. Multiple releases, including Grid’s first official release, have gone out which allow stable Grid deployments. Design and implementation of new features for workflows, integration, and purchase orders are underway. A new version of the Pike smart contract, and a new feature for Product are being developed.
- Have you switched from master to main in all your repos ? In progress
- Have you implemented repolinter.json in all your repos ? No
Questions/Issues for the TSC
There are no specific issues at the moment.
Overall Activity in the Past Quarter
Started work on an integration component for Grid. This component is meant to provide a more traditional API interface for third party components and partners.
Grid daemon REST API endpoints that return multiple records are now paged.
Versioning the grid daemon REST API and moving the bulk of its functionality into the SDK crate.
Started work on a workflow module in the Grid SDK. This will allow smart contract authors to create custom workflows.
A new version of the Pike smart contract is in development which includes functionality such as role delegation, and an index of alternate organization identifiers.
A lot of planning/design of new features in the form of RFC content.
The main source of asynchronous engagement is still the Hyperledger Ch”at #grid channel and RFC PRs. Grid community meetings continue, with a schedule of one every 4 weeks.
Working through RFCs for Grid Workflow, Grid Purchase Order, Grid Integration Component, and enhancements to Grid Product and Grid Pike. Implementations of the same.
Maintainers remain the same as the previous quarter. There are 19 maintainers across the different repos.
Contributor diversity remains steady with previous quarters, with some share of the project’s overall diversity coming from non-developer participation in their areas of expertise.
Sponsoring organizations that are actively contributing to Grid include Cargill, Target, GS1, and Bitwise IO. Additional contributions come from individual contributors.
