Pre-Dev-Update Thread! Yay! :D

I’m not certain by any means but it almost looks like there is a sprint to get at2 done and replace parsec with BLS in routing, run some tests and then we might see it. They’re an effective and efficient team that’s for sure.

Ready to play your part in a shared network by adding your vault from home to a single section with other people’s vaults? Keep reading…

MaidSafe are currently hosting some bootstrap nodes on Digital Ocean to kickstart a single section, you can bootstrap using these nodes as hardcoded contacts, then watch the logs as your vault joins the network, progresses to Adult status, and plays its part in hosting Immutable Data Chunks. Of course you will also be able to create an account on this network, login, upload data, create keys and wallets, and all the other commands described in this user guide. This guide will take you through connecting to that, but of course it can be applied to connecting to any shared section, hosted by anyone.

The above is part of a new section being added to the SAFE CLI documentation.

You guys are on the ball!
You won’t be able to connect just yet - we’ll be releasing a new CLI, authd & vault which you’ll need to update to before it’ll work :slight_smile:

I havent tried yet.
I can’t get onto the shared section right now . I could last night after reverting to the last release. I suspect some components that need to be in sync is probably not quite in sync for the next few hours until everything is ready.

Seems the answer is no - for now at least…

hmm… that encouraged me to look past this error.

So, clean install without thinking to start baby-fleming gets:

safe vault join

but
safe vault run-baby-fleming
sees

:partying_face:

or am I doing it wrong… with yours showing a hard coded ip address and mine localhost 127.0.0.1 ??
