The Sovrin Foundation is preparing to advance the Sovrin ledger from the sandbox stage to the first production stage, called the Sovrin Provisional Network, by the first week of February. This name signifies that all transactions will now be real and permanent, but the network is still at an early growth stage and will need stress testing, performance testing, and peer security review before it moves into the next stage of general availability (GA).
The Sovrin Technical Governance Board (TGB) is preparing to have the provisional ledger go-live code ready by the end of the month. So the job of the Sovrin Trust Framework Working Group is to have the necessary Sovrin Trust Framework legal docs ready for approval by the Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees by their monthly meeting on January 25th.
Sovrin Foundation counsel Scott Blackmer (@sblackmer) and I put have together this Google doc as a single place to reference the three legal documents (also being drafted as public Google docs that are open to comment) and our workplan to finish them:
- The Sovrin Provisional Trust Framework (PTF)
- The Sovrin Identity Owner Agreement (IOA)—Appendix A to the PTF
- The Sovrin Founding Steward Agreement (FSA)—Appendix B to the PTF
Completing these documents will be the main focus of the Sovrin Trust Framework Working Group during the month of January. If you would like to participate in this Working Group, we have weekly webmeetings at 1PM Pacific Time on Tuesdays. Feel free to send me an email at first name drummond dot last name reed at the domain evernym.com if you would like to be added to the meeting invite.
