Podling Teaclave Report - August 2021

August 1, 2021 · Mingshen Sun

# Teaclave

Teaclave is a universal secure computing platform, making computation on privacy-sensitive data safe and simple.

Teaclave has been incubating since 2019-08-20.

# Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

  • Improve project structure and documentation
  • Grow the community (attracting more committers, contributors, users)
  • Publish Apache releases (resolving logistics on Apache release)

# Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?


# How has the community developed since the last report?

Since the last report, we have organized three monthly virtual meetups. Many people from the community share their usage experience of Teaclave. Also, we invited some contributors to talk about some technical details of the design and implementation. For each meetup, we have minutes write-up published on the Teaclave blog.

We also have two new members:

  • 2021-07-09, Hongbo Chen (ya0guang), Commiter
  • 2021-07-25, Gordon King (garyw), Mentor
