What you can expect this week

We will test fixes for:

Jira Legacy
serverSystem JIRA
jqlQuerykey in (rhol-581, core-826, core-974)

We will also play highCard.rho, a version of the card game in Rholang. Contracts for the game are at

Contract from Proof: it use MakeMint implementation from genesis block.

Steps for testing

  • Testers will install and run RNode
  • Testers will create a network of peers
  • Several testers will deploy Rholang contracts and propose a block
  • Testers will report on the number of blocks received
  • We will watch to see if the number of blocks received syncs and becomes common to all peers on the network.
  • If possible a node will join after some blocks have been proposed, and observe a more efficient mechanism of obtaining historical block data.

Configure your network

See RNode supported network configuration for information on how to configure your network to connect to other nodes.
