Development has been a little bit slower over the past month, having only cut two releases:
The work has mostly involved some fixes that we came across while dogfooding.
From the dogfooding experience, we realised that it’s necessary to have more control over the
gitd process when communicating reference names from/to the link storage. This prompted us to have a more fleshed-out RFC describing
Most of our efforts have involved hiring new people for the Link Team. We have been hard at work interviewing and evaluating candidates, even getting a few onboard. Expect to see a few new faces on the mailing list
Another reason we haven’t made much visible progress is that we spent a week in Paris enjoying the stimulating conversations at the Radicle Offsite and some other events (as well as some dancing )
Something that came out of chatting with other team members was the usability of the Link identity system. We’ve known that it’s been hard to use and requires some love and attention. This has sent us down some research Some of the technical aspects we want to be thinking about while digging in are:
- Key management (including rotation and compromise) – can we add this to the “hard problems in computer science” list?
- Decentralised agreement – how can delegates update the metadata of a project in a friendly process?
