Every Wednesday the team joins in a hangout that streams to RChain’s youtube channel.

The Community Debriefs category in the RChain Blog summarizes.

September 12th - Community Debrief 94

  • RSong bug: demo not from the chain yet, but will be as soon as the bug is fixed. Go dev team! We need as many apps on Testnet as possible to ensure stability. RSong deal details will be on GitHub very soon.
  • RCon3: Greg feels very positive. We hit all of our goals but the bug for the RSong demo, we had a presence at Burning Man from a node running in the desert, but the world-class concert had a sadly small audience. Please fill out your surveys for a better RCon in 2019.
  • Medha's Update: Entered sprint 16 and 17, refreshed Testnet on Tuesday while keeping the blockchain state, Rholang team knows issue with show blocks, performance focus, new SRA team, LMDB frying grain first test had great results of 8,000-10,000 comm events per second. Performance specs for validating are estimated at multiple cores and 32G of RAM now but will grow smaller with more performance testing.
  • Phillip on Incentivized Testnet
  • Reflective: Great in-person connections at RCon, deal being closed now, Seattle meetup recorded tonight, difficult to respond to all validator concerns. Reflective not setting policies, but addressing concerns.
  • Pithia: 3 portfolio companies, connecting German Coop with resources we've invested in, blockchain coalition event coming up
  • Essential to Build Apps for stability of the network. Test coverage along won't cut it. Community, please put the network into use.
    • New hire at pyrofex to create and update documentation, which has been a concern for DApp developers.
    • Ned is working with Joshy Orndoff on a Rholang tutorial and building a working group.
  • Managing content on the Chain: Intention to never censor unless there is a regulatory complaint or government involvement. If coop assumes no accountability, then validators are at risk. This is another pointer to having sister cooperatives that are autonomous.
  • RCon Footage should be up in 48 hours: Process review needed

Focus on triage every Tuesday, volunteer node testing session Thursday or Friday (as well as regular sessions), please check the dashboard before filing a bug, economics for consensus not yet ready, use cases essential for a clean mainnet. The system needs pressure put on, so validators and testers are much needed! We have a plan for compressing block data before sending, rhoscala team has wrapped up their work and joined the other teams, registration for RCon3 is still open
  • Pithia: Deal with the coop is signed! Lawrence says thanks. 18 companies in the pipeline, 9 gained consideration, materials for a rholang course, AWS partnership

    • RCon3 scholarships went to all who applied, only conference participants will be invited to the concert
