Also very helpful is to stay connected with the community and give regular updates about the progress.

We now have a weekly BitShares Mumble 1h before the Beyond Bitcoin show.

Please feel free to join us there too.

I have re-added my support after finding the reply of @vikram. My votes have only been removed for a couple hours.

@vikram or @Agent86 can we have a status update please? I emailed you but no reply, I hope you guys are well.
 
We are paying you about 300,000 BTS per month and I do not see any github commits for ~2.5 months now:
 
https://github.com/vikramrajkumar
https://github.com/vikramrajkumar/dotfiles/commits/master
https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-2/
 
I know R&D can take some time, but we voted for "soledger" because you are already experienced with Bitshares, so could move things along quickly.
Weekly updates would be really nice please, even if it is just a few sentences.
 
There is a lot of work to be done:
https://github.com/cryptonomex/graphene/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+sort%3Acreated-asc

Replying to your email right after this Ken. Sorry for the delay I've been mostly offline between Christmas and New Years.

To be clear, since my initial work in November, I have nothing to report for December. Lance and I ended up heavily focusing on our internal Soledger project this past month.

In January, I intend to switch gears and make progress on BTS including making up for December. As I mentioned in my previous update, the primary thing I am considering next is to update fc with upstream patches from steemit/fc.

In the long term I think this is important to do because at present, fc has problems building with newer versions of the Boost library as well as with the Clang compiler. As time goes on, I want to avoid compatibility issues like this preventing people from building/developing BTS in newer system environments.

Again, this will require alot of care to avoid including for example changes to JSON serialization to avoid changing the BTS API. The Boost compatibility upgrade is also specifically a major change and will require more analysis to see the feasibility of it working with BTS. I've had some discussion with @modprobe (https://github.com/nathanhourt) and he is also interested in an upgraded fc for the compatibility reasons I mentioned.

I will also review the issue tracker for low-hanging fruit. To reiterate however, the scope of this worker is focused on administration and essential maintenance as described in the OP and my later reply https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,23495.msg300215.html#msg300215, so I think monthly (rather than weekly) status updates strike a good balance. If anyone is running into specific bugs that are preventing them from doing something please let me know.

All that being said I am open to any feedback from you guys. Happy new years all.

You should be aware @vikram that today you were voted out due to lack of activity.

Just making you aware in case you are not watching.

Thank you for the email reply Vikram, much appreciated.
 
When you said "Maintenance" I was banking on the idea that some of the existing Issues would be tackled:
https://github.com/cryptonomex/graphene/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+sort%3Acreated-asc
 
At least some of the easy ones. Activity on our github repos also shows the world that we are not a dead community, but a very active one, WITH active Bitshares Developers too.
 
Thank you again for your update, I look forward to your Bitshares commits in January.

Just broadly so far I've:

- Merged some fixes from upstream Graphene repo that have been sitting there for a while
- Workaround for log files filling up disk space during sync
- Removed some offline seed nodes
- Deleted some abandoned branches from GitHub repo
- Updated docs submodule (repo wiki) with upstream Graphene updates
- Merged a couple minor pull requests
- Removed some no longer active members from GitHub org
- Added @svk as admin to GitHub org

Next I want to begin merging updates/fixes (of which there are many) from upstream steemit/fc. This requires a lot of care because some of them are incompatible with BitShares.

Thanks for the update Vikram, great to see work progressing and excited to hear about target updates and fixes you mentioned from steemit/fc.

If you have a spare 15-20 minutes on a Friday; it would be really great if you could stop into the Beyond Bitcoin mumble (https://steemit.com/beyondbitcoin/@officialfuzzy/guest-signups-beyond-bitcoin-hangout-185-12-9-16-rsvp-to-guest-speak-about-your-blockchain-project-last-week-s-payouts-signups) and just say Hi and let us know some of the updates you think are worth merging.

I am hoping one day you may look to expand your role and take on further dev work on the platform.

Cheers,
GC

Thanks for the update.  Nice to see all the commits on GitHub, forward progress for BitShares.

General housecleaning as promised. I know it is tedious and generally boring but it needs doing. Thanks for that.  +5%

I'd like to see a monthly report of what you have done and what are your goals for the next month.
Nothing special, just a small list published here and on steemit.

Thanks
