Hello Steemians, 22 days ago we released the HF21 Testnet and we’re happy to see that a number of great Steemians like @gtg and @timcliff have been performing tests. We would like to tag a final release in the near future and give exchanges as much time as possible before the Hardfork date to prepare. But before we do that we need to be absolutely certain that the code has been sufficiently tested.
Test, Test, Test
That’s why we want to put a call out to all Steem developers capable of testing HF21 to do one last testing push so that we can be confident that there will be no issues with the Hardfork. But we also have one more favor to ask: document your testing on Steem.
While testing alone is great, we (all stakeholders who have a vested interest in ensuring that HF21 goes smoothly) can’t be certain that the testing is sufficient if we don’t know the details of what an engineer tested, and how they ran their tests.
That’s why we would like to ask those developers running tests on HF21 to post to Steem about their process for testing the blockchain and share a link to that post in the comments section below. Not only will this help us determine whether the level and type of testing is sufficient, but it will also help developers learn from one another, and help the Steem developer community improve our testing methods over time, so that effective testing becomes easier and easier with every Hardfork.
Thank you, and Test On.
The Steemit Team
