Our current governance process has been functioning reasonably well for a while now, but relies heavily on this forum and results in a fair bit of duplicate work, along with attendant risk of issues and divergence between versions of proposals.
Ideally each proposal would live in only one place, and there’d be no need to copy them and edit them in multiple locations. At the same time, we need a persistent and stable URL for proposals so that they can be referred to in future, and the forum isn’t ideal for that.
I’d like to suggest the following changes to streamline and improve the governance/proposal process:
- Temp-checks remain as-is, as posts in the
DAO-Wide -> Temp checkcategory.
- Draft proposals are submitted by creating a pull request on the governance-docs GitHub repository, following a standard template. Forum discussions on a draft should link to the PR rather than reproducing it. Comments can be left directly on the PR.
- When a proposal is advanced to a vote, editors assign it a number and merge it. A snapshot vote is created linking to (but not reproducing) the contents of the proposal, and the proposal is updated to link to the live snapshot.
- When a proposal advances or is rejected, editors update the file in GitHub as per the current process.
This system will help reduce duplicated effort and overhead, and permit maintaining a single canonical version of each proposal. Thoughts?
