Research Summary

The article is a detailed write-up of the Ethereum All Core Developers Execution Call #164, held on June 22, 2023. The meeting discussed a new testing repository for recent and upcoming code changes, progress on the Cancun/Deneb upgrade, and a proposal to separate Ethereum Request for Comments (ERC) proposals from Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs). The execution spec tests repository is a new testing framework implemented in Python for Ethereum client teams. The scope of the Cancun/Deneb upgrade, Dencun in short, has been more or less finalized. The document also discusses the proposal to move ERC token standard proposals to a separate repository from EIPs.

Actionable Insights

  • Execution Spec Tests: Developers should consider using the new execution spec tests repository for testing recent and upcoming Ethereum code changes.
  • Dencun Upgrade: Developers should keep track of the progress on the Cancun/Deneb upgrade and test their implementations against the finalized scope.
  • ERC and EIP Separation: Stakeholders should consider the proposal to separate ERC token standard proposals from EIPs and evaluate its potential impact on their operations.
