This prop should be ready to submit on-chain early next week.
To simplify and reduce bias in the decision process, here’s a possible framework for how the multisig would manage the whitelist:
- Any contributor who wishes to submit a proposal that has gone through the full off-chain governance process (community feedback, temperature checking, testing & peer review — to be more defined later) should be whitelisted for a short period of time (1 week) to submit a single proposal.
- Active contributors — defined as those who have been a core contributor on at least 2 successful proposals OR those who are salaried by the DAO — may be whitelisted for an extended period of time.
- Extended whitelisting will start at 3 months. Upon completion of this period, if the contributor has upheld community governance standards and continues to be an active contributor, they may have their whitelisting renewed for 6 months, and subsequently 12 months (max term) at the discretion of the multisig.
- If a whitelisted contributor fails to uphold community governance standards, this contributor should be removed from the whitelist.
The community multisig is welcome to flex/update this framework as they see fit. This exact framework isn’t a fundamental part of this proposal; it’s merely meant to offer some initial guidance for the community multisig on how to use the newly granted power.
