This has been discussed and I'm leaning towards this.Thoughts on the minimum specs being part of the framework and kicking out any Authority Servers that don't meet them?
I'll take it to the core committee.
There's followers that can be added to the Authority Set (Factomize has one) and I'm sure at least a few of the testnet servers would upgrade.I'll take it to the core committee.
It would remove 10 servers from the current authority set of 23 servers which is a substantial amount. I don't have the technical insight to know if a smaller but more robust set of servers is better than a larger one with a higher number of nodes.
Yes, I'm aware of that. I was thinking in a "short term perspective"; i.e if it was enforced right away. If core doesn't want to take a 10 server loss right away we could have a 2 week period where people retired under specced servers and replaced them with new ones.There's followers that can be added to the Authority Set (Factomize has one) and I'm sure at least a few of the testnet servers would upgrade.
