This to me was the most interesting conversation in the first community call. It seems that a lot of the confusion around Eth 1.x could be that people don’t realize it’s just the short term roadmap for Ethereum, not a separate initiative. Also since 2.0 sounds more attractive than 1.x, perhaps it’s not getting enough attention despite a lot of the work being eventually used in 2.0. Should we drop the name and just instead call this effort Ethereum?
There seems to be too much overlap these days to have them be so separate. Just off the top of my head the overlap includes:
- Finalizing eth 1.0 chain with 2.0 beacon chain
- Fee market overhaul via eip-1559
- State rent/stateless clients
I’d probably prefer the roadmap be merged and instead of splitting by version we use themes which stories fall into such as Scaling, UX and more which then get merged into forks as they are ready. AKA a normal dev process
