In the transition from Foundation to Community there is apparently some overlap in the mandate between the proposed Core Units.
The reason why it is necessary to bring this to light is the nature of online communication which in many cases makes it problematic to discuss certain topics and to make changes once the mandate has been ratified.
Please think about the difficulty of online consensus forming on the following topics:
Core Unit Mandate - difficult
Core Unit Compensation - hard
Core Unit MKR incentives - outright problematic
Core Unit forced restructuring - not tried yet but probably harrowing
This difficulty getting to consensus is precisely why it is so important to tune mandates to avoid the worst overlaps. Some overlap might be just fine, others are better avoided.
The following potential overlaps are identified:
(1) DAI evangelizing
(2) Core Unit involvement in (1)
(3) Social media channels
(4) Official communication
Again - some overlap might be just fine, but if the mandates are not adjusted the Maker Community is in some cases paying tripple or more with no apparent coordination and limited specialization between Core Units.
With regards to the forming of the Core Units - stepping over from the Foundation to the Community doing more or less exactly what you have been doing since 2018 sounds like the path of least resistance, but there are differences between the two.
The largest difference between the Foundation and the Community is the huge increase in transparency. There is more as well but that will have to wait.
Let me stress that this is in no way criticism towards the proposed facilitators of the Core Units involved, what we are seeing is the result of going from an opaque organization to a transparent one - that is all.
That being said, it is possibly beneficial if the facilitators of the proposed Core Units are able to sit down, maybe with the assistance of GOV, and maybe to some degree reduce mandate overlap.
Feedback appreciated and please do not hesitate to point out my errors.
