Provided pointer to Tech Docs space: https://wiki.openidl.org/display/TDOCS/TechDocs
Invitation to review and discuss what TSC wishes to ratify
Specifically he walked through the "Architecture Tenets":
Q from Jeff: should we add comments to the wiki? Yes, just don't edit it directly.
Ken also pointed to the Architecture Diagram and DevOps documents
Truman reported on work he's doing to recruit additional organizational participation in the TSC, including state regulators.
Truman encouraged folks to attend the Open Source Summit end of the month in Seattle, where he and Ken will be.
James asked - I've got some technical questions, are they appropriate here?
Brian: yes, let's just figure out what the questions imply for decisions, or things to apply resources to (e.g. improved documentation)
James asks: when I introduce others in my organization to the specifics in the tech stack, it's so helpful to have the rationale for picking them, and perhaps the alternatives reviewed. Can we go through the rationales for them? (general agreement yes)
James asks: how do we know what to put into the containers, and how much do I move out into the framework around the containers?
Ken answers: the main principle there is encapsulation, and using Kubernetes to manage that
Brian: this is great conversation, how do we formalize this? Let's get this into docs, we can pay for better tech docs.
James: what was the rationale behind MongoDB?
Ken: Driven by a desire to share the entire extraction pattern. (Truman added some other details.)
James: why map reduce vs aggregation pipelines?
Ken: This approach allows you to see it happen on the blockchain. But that was an early decision, we could revisit in the long term.
James: The generalized data model is one of my concerns. Is that something we at the TSC decide and formalize?
Truman: That will be at the RR Data Model committee. But it is intended to be collaborative. Dina and Ruturaj are the stewards of the model currently. (more discussions on the data model ensued)
Discussion ensured about future topics, whether a review of prior decisions would be desirable and acceptable.
Truman said: Ken is cleaning up the architecture issues on the wiki and expects to let folks know they're ready for review on/about Wednesday next week. Comments or feedback is requested to prioritize open items to be addressed in the next meeting or fleshed out further.
Meeting adjourned 10:52am PT.
