I saw a Twitter conversation w/ @pet3rpan, @lrettig, @boris & others about the use of funds, particularly in the context of raising for bounties. There is a lot of potential in this approach, so let’s dig into it.
So far, donations have been directed at running our Council gatherings and related activities (part of “In-Person Work”). A bounty program may enable Magicians in the community to work more on advancing EIPs and other important work outlined in our Practices.
- Online Presence
- In-Person Work
- Iterative Workflow
- Participants do research, gain experience, present their work, and make proposals.
- Proposals are discussed and reworked, online and in person, until consensus is reached.
Is a bounty program a good fit for our goals and practices?
How might we best structure a bounty program?
