Seeing some timeout errors under loadtest that we weren't seeing previously, even though the new release doesn't touch the db code. Investigating in Not likely to be a blocker any time in the near future.

Sync 2.0

Spec is near-final. ( Tokenserver work is complete as part of the AITC release. 2.0 server implementation available on Services github.

Current launch target is end of Q3.

Sync 1.1

Longer-term support for 1.1 than originally expected means a couple of changes:

  • Efforts underway to merge a lot of the experimental branches and production branches back into a coherent trunk.
  • Metlog logging being added in
  • Semi-active code development.

I'd expect a significant code push in the first week of June.

Resilient Sync

  • targeting end of q3, going out with sync 2.0

Upcoming Projects

Signing Service

Services has taken over this piece of the marketplace code. It consists of two parts: Hardware Security Modules generating periodic keys, and signing servers that use those keys to sign submitted payloads. Documentation at

Moving the HSM machines from their current location to on of our colos is a blocker for marketplace launch and is targeted for completion before June 21. Signing service migration is not a blocker, but is anticipated to be happening in the same timeframe.

QA, tools, automation, etc
