ETH Foundation Meetings for Ethereum 1.x Development to be Open and Recorded for Community


It now seems official that the Core developer meetings on Ethereum 1x will be transparent and can be watched live by the general public.

This Friday marked the first instance of Ethereum core developers meeting which was not open to the public. It was an invite-only session which was tries to provide safe space to the developers. The meetings were conducted under the Chatham House Rule which says that the facts are to be published following the meeting but are to remain unattributed.

The Chatham House Rule of the latest Ethereum 1.x meeting, then, represents a kind of in-between: the call was not recorded, but unattributed notes of its proceedings will be published. There has been some skepticism, though, like from Nick Johnson of the Ethereum Name Service, who said the meeting was “a step backward for transparency on ethereum,” or from Parity's Afri Schoedon, who said he was “very uncomfortable attending a call that [was] not recorded.”

Despite these sentiments, the meeting had record attendance – around 43 at its peak – which is a sizable portion of the approximately 60 core devs around the globe. With the new rule, multiple participants felt like they could speak more freely.

Devcon4 is scheduled to take place this month, which will allow community members to openly discuss ethereum 1x. The conference will also allow for clarity around the process, what the upgrade will entail, and more. This type of clarity will enable the community to have a better sense where this upgrade is going.

Hudson Jameson, of the Ethereum Foundation, announced on Twitter:

Afri Schoedon, the release manager for Parity, one of ethereum’s client, has advised that the upgrade is issued on a solo blockchain network. On the other hand, some are hoping that the blockchain will be released on existing blockchains and much earlier than the scheduled date.

Though the developers have not yet settled the code changes that will make up the upgrade, there seem to be a number of proposals. A final proposal is scheduled to be proposed and approved by the network’s users by June 2019.
