        • Investigation of increase in time to propose observed in testnet
        • Removal of faucet
        • Provide property based testing for the estimator
      • Node team
        • Resolve challenges connecting to a busy network with fairness property
        • UX improvements and optimizations
        • Bug investigations
      • Rholang team
        • Completion of work to bridge cost accounting with the wallet and proof of stake contract
        • Completion of foundational work for multisig and start on multisig
        • Bug fixes
      • RSpace team
        • Implementation of soft checkpointing
        • Foundational work for upcoming peek implementation
    • Release
  • Mercury requirements and acceptance criteria
  • Testnet status
    • Testnet-1 is live. Our intention is to keep this functioning so the community can deploy rholang to this public testnet. Please see RChain public testnet information to learn more about public testnet as well as a FAQ.
  • Community testing
    • Thursdays at 14:00 UTC.

Blockers to testnet-2

  • See complete view in  RCHAIN-3168 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Charging for deploys creates conflicting blocks. Planning to resolve this with the implementation of peek, the ability to look at a value without logging a change. This was unplanned work. Current estimate is 3 weeks.

Risks to code completion for Mercury

  • Addition of peek implementation to the requirements required to provide cost accounting.  RCHAIN-2226 - Getting issue details... STATUS  
  • Addition of work in Rholang to address bloat in the tuplespace.  RCHAIN-3542 - Getting issue details... STATUS
