Continuing discussion on the Development subgroup request put to the Ecosystem WG by @inplco. A link to the original request is below:
A lot of the work set out in the Development subgroup request is handled by TNL or other Working Groups or subgroups in the DAO:
|Making sure that ENS is present at global Ethereum conferences.||TNL|
|Ensuring ENS’s sponsorship in hackathons, panels, workshops, and speaker lists.||TNL|
|Foster DAO2DAO relations where the principle of public goods is a common theme.||Public Goods WG|
TNL will be submitting a proposal for funding in the coming weeks. If approved, this would include a budget that would allow TNL to participate in events through sponsorships and allow TNL team members to attend events.
I agree that ENS should be represented at the many industry events that take place IRL and online. My position is that participation and representation of ‘ENS’ at events should be carried out by TNL team members, unless delegated to the DAO by TNL.
To the extent that an event relates specifically to the ENS DAO, it makes sense for the DAO to fund the participation and manage representatives (and associated costs).
For the reasons above, I do not think the request for a ‘Development’ subgroup should be approved by the @Ecosystem_Stewards.
