Welcome to new sponsors Arca, Montech and Mover!
We're pleased to welcome 3 new sponsors to EEA Community Projects, home of Baseline.
Arca is an institutional grade financial services firm building products utilizing and investing in digital assets.
Montech is a blockchain app design company.
Mover is building a product that will create open and better access to finance.
All three join the other Baseline Sponsors whose financial commitment ensures that the project remains open to all technical participants and receives the resources it needs to succeed.
Thank you all for your support!

Links to candidate specs for consideration as a Release
Members of the PGB,
As you know, the Baseline TSC approved submitting the Baseline Version 1.0 specifications to you for consideration as an official Release, the first step forward on the OASIS standards track workflow. I've confirmed with Andreas that the following links are the permalinks to the editions of the draft specifications approved by the TSC:
- Baseline Core Version 1.0 - https://github.com/eea-oasis/baseline-standard/blob/e4620597c739a9fa7cdabdcc26fb17b76b24beee/core/baseline-core-v1.0-psd01.md
- Baseline API and Data Model Version 1.0 - https://github.com/eea-oasis/baseline-standard/blob/e4620597c739a9fa7cdabdcc26fb17b76b24beee/api/baseline-api-v1.0-psd01.md
- Baseline CCSM Specification Version 1.0 - https://github.com/eea-oasis/baseline-standard/blob/e4620597c739a9fa7cdabdcc26fb17b76b24beee/ccsm/baseline-ccsm-v1.0-psd01.md
The files are now turned over to you for your consideration and action. Please let us know if we can help you in any way.
Baseline TSC Important Actions for Aug/Sept
Hi Baseline Protocol Leadership and Stakeholders, looking forward to seeing many of you on Monday's general session. Please take a moment to read this update.
First TSC Members who haven't yet voted on the following grant proposals, please do so today or asap, if you can.
If approved, these grants constitute the balance of the $100k Ethereum Foundation gift. After a retrospective on how this funding went over the summer, we will start tin-cupping to add more funds to this successful program.
Second, TSC Elections:
Third, Reinvigorating Operations:
A significant amount of baseline protocol open source code, open source tools, and product offerings enabling baselining will drop in September in advance of the October 1 Eth Atlanta event. (ethatl.com) Being at the event in person or virtually would be a great thing for everyone in our community.
The important thing is that we are about to go from a specification and general approach to a set of usable tools for universal state synchronization over the internet including the first always-on L2 for managing baseline proofs, Baseledger. I'll repeat that and set it apart so that folks can start adding it to talking points:
The Baseline Protocol: The new standard for universal state synchronization over the internet.
BRI-1, Provide, Baseledger and other tools about to make baselining accessible, straightforward, affordable and easy for everyone -- developers, solutions, products from startups to the enterprise.
Time to start baselining, everyone.
Starting in October and culminating in February when we hope to have the full standard officially promulgated by OASIS with a test harness for compliance, we SHOULD start to experience a significant surge in participation -- and a surge in demand for more products, services and activity from this community. Saddle up!
In order to manage the surge, On September 1, Sonal Patel will join us to help run the baseline community full time (80% of her full time position with ConsenSys to be exact). She is on copy...please welcome her. She will help organize roadmaps for TSC debate and review. We will recast the maintainer corps as Core Devs and implement an EIP-style protocol for ongoing work on the core and reference implementations. And we will start to marshal focused efforts to sweep baselining into the core operations of companies world wide upon release of V1, much of which will be available in alpha/beta form at Eth Atlanta on the first of October.
We will also be updating the website and making it MUCH MUCH easier to go to the website, click a button, create a login, and manage your involvement in the community.
Fourth, Standard Draft is now Complete
Thanks to the efforts of Anais Ofranc, Andreas Freund and a team of regular contributors and reviewers, including Sam Stokes, Mehran Shakri, Alessandro Gasch, Gage Mondok, Kyle Thomas, Sam Stokes and others, we have a remarkable standards doc about to be submitted to OASIS. If you read it, you'd see that it is not simply a specification for a narrow view of baseline proofs. It is a masterpiece of distributed systems thinking that sets a standard for the universal synchronization of information systems across the Internet. Stay tuned, when we've finished next week, I've committed to making a podcast-style recording of the entire document, read ADSM syle...just for fun. :) Here's the latest draft: https://github.com/eea-oasis/baseline-standard/tree/sec5-BPI-middleware-and-integration
And one more thing:
If you haven't already heard the audio of our upcoming, awesome and destined-to-go-viral animated video on baselining, here's a link to the file on slack:
And here are a few snapshots of the animation in progress:
Let's get baselining, everyone! :)
Welcome to the new EEA Community Projects Announce mailing list
As you might have noticed, Chet closed the old Ethereum OASIS Open Project mailing lists yesterday as part of the transition process to EEA Community Projects.
From now on, this is the list for occasional official notifications and discussions from EEA Community Projects. The old mailing list archive will still be publicly visible.
Also, please note that we have reconfigured the CLA Assistant instance for the community. We will import the existing CLAs. However, you *may* need to resign the CLA on your first pull request under the new org name.
If so, please go ahead and fill it out again - it simply reaffirms your agreement to the license terms of the project.
