  • Ask HN: Is Ethereum's Merge one of the biggest successes in Open Source?
    12 projects | | 14 Sep 2022
    It certainly seems it will be remembered as a major success story for open p2p protocols on the global Internet of our time.

    A great multitude of developers and enthusiasts belonging or contributing to diverse teams spread across the world: developing, debating, and collaborating for years to arrive at the big event.

    And it's all been done very much in the public view:

    I expect we will see a "merged" client in the future. Nimbus could be the closest of anyone to this vision (nimbus-eth1, nimbus-eth2). Not sure when this will happen though. Anyways, you have to remember -- these are two extremely complicated pieces of software. Just the interface between the two has been developed and tests over the last 18 months. I think there will always need to be serious encapsulation of logic for it to be maintainable.
