Hi Chase, thanks for putting this together and for the explainer videos to provide context. The functional approach to defining pods makes sense, as I agree with you that allowing us to mix membership from between different orgs and groups is valuable.
The actual scope of pods and responsibilities for each will need refinement based on our evolving understanding of the purpose of the Orcanauts and its role going forward. For instance, I don’t see any scenario where the gov-naut focus stays the same. That said, I don’t see a reasonable way to clarify these until we have worked through the concerns we are addressing as part of the X1 feedback / Tea Time activities.
I’m not sure how this impacts the timeline for doing this work, so we may need to make adjustments there as well. Hope this is helpful.
