    • Current Work In Progress - slow and steady
      • Configuration changes to make node deployments easier and cleaner - nutzipper working to complete this task and create tests
      • Ongoing - Improvements to last finalized state initial draft PR issued  but quite a bit of work involved still. The PR and the branch are structured so that multiple people can collaborate/ work on different parts of the feature at the same time. The scope of this work enables (a) faster catchup by new nodes - you can start from the last finalized state - this is a differentiator for RChain (b) offloading older data and differentiated storage and retrieval strategies for the same (c) allows for a leaner / less bloated node
      • Creating a node.js API for exchanges that need it. We anticipate PR being available for review in the next couple of days. 
      • Augmenting and rationalizing monitoring of mainnet and other nets, including distributing monitoring over multiple cloud providers, for resilience
