Data fund set up. Email form for whitelisters and project owners who are not using, why? Reward DAO, campaign transferred from Lindsy. Filled out roles.


  • issue prioritisation loomio
  • Is there a governance backlog as suggested here?

Agenda item 1

People know the drill. The difference now is I've added an indication of bug, priority or feature (ported from git hub process). Most ppl are selecting bugs! Nothing else. (later in roles suggested about decentralised sign off - e.g. 3 people rather than Griff)

Adgenda item 2

J - Can we make a list of sorts for governance backlog items?


Clarifying Questions

K - was pondering that myself L - what lands on the wiki and what doesn't? K - very hard to document agreed processes as we forget after L - loomio DAI split is a good use case of not remembering the specifics. KR - would be nice to take the learnings from these confusions into wiki descriptions. K - we can do it on git hub to test the waters and document the outcomes in a wiki G - would love governance to follow in comms footsteps. Can write the description for GitHub. K - best document whats happened already. Then move forward re: modelling the DAC. Would love to take the learning of what happened. Giveth wiki is our collective will to the world!! The big picture of what occurred. M - is there a bigger picture of how the offline community works with the Dapp?? e.g. Curation markets are the same as loomio. It's a continuous process. Is there a meeting place between them KR - yeah, exactly that. Documenting decisions for Dapp prioritisation. Looking at the future.
K - researching them they all want to make the work a better place as the first port of call! We need to document this better. Misses the tooling up and playing in social coding

Social Coding J - let's close a loop with the Odyssey hack people. Be friends share their media and indoctrinate them into SC M - SC is very fundable. We just need to make it a bigger Schelling point. K - that was the Blockternship, cool start but fizzled, then dragged. We could try again? Colony also have a bug bounty and would love us to use them. Meta Colony has a rewards process which is good.


Governance repo Document personal governance learnings Get the blockternship running again
