Ethereum Developers Conference Call for Temporary Approval of an Improvement Proposal

For the Istanbul upgrade, developers have proposed 28 official improvement proposals (EIPs) involving mining algorithms, code execution, and data storage. In the Ethereum Biweekly Developers Conference Call, core developers discussed a dozen of them in detail. However, most of the options require further discussion. Only one EIP (EIP 1108) has been temporarily approved. The proposal proposes a minor improvement to the Ethereum's Gas fee. Although the proposal was temporarily approved, the baseline data will need to be submitted at the next core developer meeting.
