Hm?
Do you mean is Homestead happening (I am not an "ether dev" btw, but may be able to help)?

trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:27
So, naturally, I had to question what was goin on here lol
Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:28
which is an update to the Gitbooks frontier guide
trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:28
Homestead Guide vs homestead itself?
Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:28
That is my understanding yes.
Bob Summerwill
@bobsummerwill
Jan 04 2016 22:28
Correct.
Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:28
Homestead guide will cover the latest ethereum stuff since the frontier guide is badly outdated
trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:28
and the guide is not keeping up with releases thus the news bulletin?
ok
Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:29
But this is not an indication of a release date for homestead afaik
trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:29
I figured as much

So you guys document ether's homefront project with whatever the public has available though?
If anyone could would you tell me dev's github name for homefront?
Is it just vitalik?
Bob Summerwill
@bobsummerwill

There are tens or hundreds of people working on Ethereum development, both within ETHDEV as employees and outside.
@Souptacular is the King of Unofficial Documentation, and can point you to lots of resources. If you're just wanting to hand-out then http://reddit.com/r/ethereum/ is probably the best place to start.
HANG-OUT

Jan 04 2016 22:33
Wait homefront is a suite of applications or a single application?
Bob Summerwill
@bobsummerwill
Jan 04 2016 22:33
There is no "homefront". You are probably thinking of "Homestead", which is the next major (pending) release milestone.
trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:33
sorry haha
ok ty
Bob Summerwill
@bobsummerwill

Hudson Jameson

Jan 04 2016 22:34
Homestead is more of a phase or milestone. It's an invisible marker of the dev team and community saying "we are at the next phase in ethereum development and use"
Yeah feel free to ask us any q's about ethereum

Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:35
No official date set
In my opinion I am thinking end of year 2015
trismegistis

Jan 04 2016 22:35
What kind of forecast is predicted for the right conditions to switch
Conrad Barski
@drcode
Jan 04 2016 22:35
casper is pretty far off, most likely end of 2016
Hudson Jameson

Jan 04 2016 22:35
ok and Augur, any ideas about maybe 2nd quarter this year?
Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:36
I don't follow augur as closely, but I saw they recently released a blog with updates.
As far as forecast for conditions to switch, not sure on that either.
trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:36
I know not ether specifically
Hudson Jameson
@Souptacular
Jan 04 2016 22:36
that is a good question for the subreddit
the conditions to change one
trismegistis
@trismegistis
Jan 04 2016 22:36
Do you know if Augur will have a REP system for determining questions that are able to be used for the predictions?
Or do you know how new questions get approved/moderated?
