Topics discussed

Ruby on Rails

  • Reported problems on the WeChat and the Telegram group
  • Support for the Ruby Gem repository discussed. We think it hasn’t been used a lot. Thought it is used for the sign in on the Blockstack Forum.
  • Deprecation policy — we should write this up.
  • Tim will look to figure out where it is broken.
  • Ludo will look at making the feature more robust and in the process learn more about Blockstack Auth.
  • Rocket chat example is also available
  • Auth forum and the sample in the docs will be maintained

Team status report

  • Each team member reported status on what they are working on.

Other discussion

Blockstack Ruby Gem Update

Is the Ruby gem something we want to support at all? People are using it for their apps and have issues with auth.
