2022 Q4 Hyperledger FireFly
Created by Ray Chen, last modified by Jim Zhang on Jan 10, 2023
Following the release of FireFly 1.1 last quarter, work on FireFly has mainly centered around maintenance, debugging, and enhancements in the 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 releases. Additionally, we’ve updated the docs to include more tutorials and introductions to FireFly.
The Discord community continues to be very active with 66 members participating in discussions this quarter. Additionally, we’ve seen an increase in non-maintainer engagement, with community members conversing and answering each other’s questions.
Contributors are very active in the project and since September, excluding merges, we’ve had 21 authors push 254 commits to main.
There are currently 587k lines of code for Hyperledger FireFly across 19 repositories, with a total of 6.6k commits to date.

Ray Chen – Thanks for sharing the report and this is great to hear about how active the community is. There are lots of positive signs in the report – in particular, I think seeing community members answering each other's question is a great sign that expertise about the project is extending beyond the original project maintainers.
Hyperledger staff is starting to put plans in place for community activities in early 2023, so if the FireFly project is interested in taking part in any meetups, workshops or other activities next year feel free to let us know.
