Thanks to @BrianMillsJr.Eth for taking notes.

We covered the agenda as stated, with no objections on budget laid out.

Meeting lasted 25 minutes.

Key question asked was “What is the line between public goods funding & ecosystem funding?”

Public goods is a broader category that can cover nearly anything, while ecosystem funding is more focused on projects that have a clear tie to ENS.
