Contributor philosophy

  • The current state of onboarding is through permissioned entry at the top
    • Core team members do a lot of the vetting; more of a centralized approach
    • Pushing these decisions out to the pod level would push entry to the edges
    • This would give new contributors a more direct path into the community
  • A point of improvement for the current state of the community is that it can be clearer who people should talk to if they have ideas
  • The relationship between “vanilla” onboarding and customized, pod level onboarding is interesting
    • How should we think about contributor experience in this context?
    • How can pods maximally leverage their strengths to create an awesome experience?
  • Our governance charter has the potential to become an artifact that is recognized across web3.
    • It would be interesting to create a minimal version that can float around the ecosystem for other communities to use and learn from.
