A group of key Ethereum developers held on Friday, 12th April, a traditional video conference, where the question was raised about the possibility of system-upgrading on all platforms three months. This writes CoinDesk.
Therefore, one of the developers noted that some future proposals for Ethereum (EIP) renewal, for example, the introduction of storage rent fees, require many ongoing updates to impact. fulfill the total.
However, for three months, according to some participants at the meeting, it was too short. In this regard, particularly the chief engineer at Consens Joseph Delong, he and the head of the development department of Peter Siladi's Ethereum Foundation.
“If a user of the software would not have to implement hardcopies but three months would be right, but clients will usually need regular technical support. So, if you start making firm forks every three months, it takes the time needed for technical support and builds up results, ”he added. – he said.
Martin Holst Svend, head of security at the Ethereum Trust, also agreed that having a hard shelter every three months could be a bad idea, but he said some simple changes could be simplified. unanimous support could be put in place more quickly.
“The idea of seeing action X is complete, there are test examples and it is implemented in all clients. If so, the stack can be done very quickly, " t – he said.
Parity Technologies, Fredrik Harrison, noted, however, that the six-month time limit for planned hard dwellings had never been met. To make the update update, he said, it is logical to automatically switch some connected processes.
The Greg Colvin Foundation Ethereum also highlighted that most of the teams currently have the right people to deal with issues involving hard shelter and first for code tests. Fredrik Harrison commented on this, saying that the problem was financially.
'We don't have enough money to buy it,' t – the director Parity said.
Revocation The last rigor in the Ethereum network of Constantinople was made on 28 February. Shortly after that, Ethereum's major developers started to discuss the issue of who will co-ordinate more stalls on the platform. It is likely that this work will be given to many people at the same time.
The debate on the need to co-ordinate additional actions was initiated with the decision of the Parity Technologies, Afri Schoedon, discharge manager about leaving the community.
The next major network upgrade to Istanbul will be in by the end of the year.
