Project Health

Hyperledger Bevel continues to grow strong in terms of community interest . It has a diverse global community with contributors from multiple organizations and geographies.

suvajit sarkar if I understand the report correctly, the only code level activities in the past quarter was the following:

  • Added feature/mixed-org branch to support bevel fabric deployment allowing orderer & peer in same org

If that's accurate, it seems very low for a brand new top level project. You may want to add some comments in the Project Health section to acknowledge this and add some justifications. Also if there's anything the TSC or the HL staff can do to help, please also add to the content.

Hi  Jim Zhang  

The upgrade to flux v2 required code changes in flux setup role, along with changes and testing effort in all 6 supported DLT platform.
Minor code change and testing efforts were required for K8s 1.20+ support. We have recently add certificated refresh operational feature for HL Fabric platform, apologies for not adding it in report as the feature got completed couple of days back. Two other features are in-progress and awaiting code push.  https://github.com/hyperledger/bevel/projects/38

Though as stated in project health section we do see reduction in community people  participating in the project sprint planning's and community calls, but fair activity on discord could be suggestive of people working on Bevel but in silos. We could use some help to figure our how to incentivize the community to contribute back

suvajit sarkar – We'd be happy to work with you on looking at what's going on in the community to see how to get more people involved in the sprint planning and how we can incentivize people to contribute back.  Feel free to reach out to me directly and we can talk about this more over email or a call.
