Governance Community Calls - Agendas and Notes

Governance Community Call #1: June 28, 2023

Topics covered: Rules of engagement for the forum, emergency proposals, quorum.

Today’s Community Call introduced Lera, a core contributor to the Archway protocol, as interim moderator. The idea behind today’s call was to start gathering community sentiment before proposing a Code of Conduct, Archway Constitution, Best Practices, and so forth.

Regarding the rules of engagement, the community agreed upon following standard beset practices regarding community behavior. All commentary and interactions should be SFW, constructive, and on topic. Furthermore, as with all other channels, price speculation and talk is unwelcome.

The community then dove into how long proposals should be up for debate on Discourse, as well as voting period length. The general consensus was that Signaling and Community Spend Proposals should be up for 7 days and discussed on a community call, while software upgrade proposals shouldn’t have to be up for more than 3-4 days.

The community also agreed on the need for Emergency Upgrade Procedures in case of a hack or bug. There were a few suggestions, but the predominant ones were:

  1. If Quorum is reached at 80%, then the proposal passes automatically.
  2. Emergency upgrades are handled off chain, through validator coordination.
  3. A special type of Emergency Proposal is created with a X hour(s) voting period.

Additionally, what Quorum should look like was also up for discussion, as well as proposal deposits and the parameters to safeguard this figure in case of price volatility. No conclusions were drawn from these topics.

Hi

Thanks for this write up. I wonder would it be a good idea to also record these community calls and have an archive since they are an important part of the decision making process and can influence outcome.

With pleasure I will listen to the recording, as it is not always possible to listen live.
