Community Development Efforts

I’d like to start the discussion around community development efforts. Personally, I would be interested in helping to improve aspects of the UI like basic mobile support. Prior to the genesis vote, I submitted a pull request for the react client repo on github and stood up an instance at https://b-mobile.on.fleek.co that allowed any user to interact with the the B.Protocol contracts on mobile, including the new Compound integration. My branch broke post-genesis, but I’m considering getting it up and running again.

I created my pull request so that I would have mobile support and the ability to manage my position from my phone, but I think it would be cool to have contributions like this be rewarded with governance share in the future. How do we, as a community, determine what features are worthy of what share?

I think it makes sense for Smart Future Labs to remain the repo owner and decide what features are ultimately merged, but I would love to see more community contributions and I’m excited to see what comes out of the upcoming Open DeFi Hackathon.

in terms of medium to longer-term plans, a platform like Colony (https://colony.io/) would be very useful for managing a community fund, and overall member contributions as part of the DAO. Colony uses a system of “lazy consensus” to make it more efficient for spending decisions etc. And they have a clever dispute resolution and reputation system too.

In the shorter term, funding proposals to the DAO could be made via this forum.

By way of example, one of the better-organised forums I’ve seen is Pocket Network’s - How to Submit Proposals - Governance - Pocket Network Forum - they split proposals into technical, economic and ecosystem (ie funding proposals)
