The call will take place again on Google Meet: meet.google.com/ouo-uskg-niq on Wednesday, 26.07.2023 at 4pm UTC (same as last time).

I propose the following agenda:

    ** Questbook’s Grant Framework proposal
    ** Update Security Council Election Start Date to Ensure Time for Security Audit
    ** Updated Rari proposal
    ** any other proposals that we might want to discuss (please mention them in comments so that we can prepare to discuss them)
  • Updates from the Foundation
    ** Foundation Grants programme and its’ relationship with DAO Grants Frameworks
    ** other topics from the Foundation
  • Other issues related to delegates that need to be discussed (please mention them in the comments upfront if possible so that we can prepare for discussion)

We will record the call and publish it later on for a public review, so please keep that in mind.

Hope to see you all on Wednesday!

Would be nice to discuss retro-grants as well. And possible ways to help with integrations with projects from ecosystem.

The Arbitrum ecosystem is getting bigger by the day. It would be good to know how exactly a community or a foundation can help new projects to join the ecosystem more easily. Maybe there are some special procedures for this, like marketing or financial support or dedicated people?

I am once again very grateful to all of you who joined the #4 Open Governance Call! It turned out that 90 minutes was not enough to cover all the topics that we had and it was an intense call.

You can find the recording of this call here: #4 Arbitrum Open Governance Call (2023-07-26 18:05 GMT+2) - Google Drive

and the log of the chat is available here: #4 Arbitrum Open Governance Call (2023-07-26 18:05 GMT+2) - Google Drive

The next one is scheduled to take place exactly four weeks after the last one, on August 23rd, 16:00 UTC.

And again, please share your feedback on how these calls are going and what you would expect from future calls, what you would like to see/hear more of. Especially since there are more and more topics to cover, maybe we should make it a bi-weekly call?

It’s not perfect, but here are my notes from the call. Once a more structured call is established, I’ll be taking more detailed notes as it’ll be easier to follow the discussion(s).

Community Call Notes

  1. We talked about introducing a moderation policy for the public governance forums.
  • Maximum politeness policy
  • Unconstructive comments shouldn’t get posted
  • It was pointed out that a policy already exists by default in the forum.
  1. The Forum is theoretically in possession of the Foundation and is run on behalf of the DAO.

  2. A discussion around Arbitrum’s stack licensing was started by Peter McCorry of the Arbitrum Foundation. A separate call to talk specifically about licensing will be set up by Peter.

  3. Coin Flip of GMX brought a question regarding an incentives framework and a discussion was started on that front.

  4. There’s no framework and there’s no need to necessarily wait to submit a proposal for incentives, but its tone is important.

  5. We had an overview of a proposal from Rari from the Rarible team and discussed setting up a separate call to discuss the proposal in more detail. The proposal wasn’t public at the time of the discussion, but was shared at a later time and can be found here.

  6. We discussed the proposal from Camelot and the proposal from Questbook.

  7. The issue was raised by people who erroneously sent their ARB tokens to the ARB contract address. There’s a group on Telegram with users who have this issue and Krzysztof of L2Beat will work with them to try and see how to resolve the situation.

As representatives of the Seedlatam delegation, along with @cattin and other delegation members, we had the privilege of participating in this Open Governance Call #4.

During this session, we delved into engaging discussions about the active proposals on the forum and received interesting updates from the Arbitrum foundation. It was a valuable opportunity to exchange ideas and insights between delegators.

I am pleased to share the minuta of the meeting with all of you right below.

OPEN GOVERNANCE CALL #4 (26/07/2023)

Attendance: aprox 28 users

Agenda:

  • Discussion on recent proposals
    • Reflection and discussion on Camelot’s proposal
    • Questbook’s Grant Framework proposal
    • Update Security Council Election Start Date to Ensure Time for Security Audit
    • Updated Rari proposal
    • any other proposals that we might want to discuss (please mention them in comments so that we can prepare to discuss them)
  • Updates from the Foundation
    • Foundation Grants programme and its’ relationship with DAO Grants Frameworks
    • Other topics from the Foundation
  • Other issues related to delegates that need to be discussed (please mention them in the comments upfront if possible so that we can prepare for discussion)

Foundations updates

Grants program

  • There was a discussion about the foundation’s grants program.
  • The foundation wants to complement any grants program active in the DAO, to cover other areas that have not been mentioned in the grants proposed in the forum.

Forum Moderation

  • The foundation raises the idea of introducing moderators in the Forum in order to improve the productivity of the forum. In short, to be more polite. There was a great acceptance for this by those present.

  • There is a comment about encouraging constructive comments and avoiding the appearance of offensive and non-objective comments.

  • It is suggested to address all this with a non-constitutional AIP and to be suggested by the foundation.

L2 licensing

  • The foundation has discussed with partners the possibility to provide them a L2 license (to use the Arbitrum Nitro Tecnology). The foundation wonders what the DAO’s position will be with this.

  • The presents considered important to investigate the partner that will have the license, also the benefits or incentives that this will bring to the ecosystem.

  • It is felt that the more people use the arbitrum L2 stack, the better the value and robustness of it will be in the future, as it will give the possibility to evaluate its performance from different areas.

Discussion on recent proposals:

  1. Rarible.

  2. Camelot.

  3. Questbook.

Conclusion

By reviewing this minuta, I hope than you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the topics covered and the discussion than the delegators and participants had.

Thank you so much for your time and congratulations to all the organizers and participants who made this event possible each month.
