GovAlpha Weekly Update - 2021-08-19

Highlights

Delegation

  • We’ve begun tracking delegates participation and communication metrics - currently these are both manually checked by GovAlpha, in the future participation will be automatic, but comms will probably remain manual. Thanks to @Sebix for helping with this.
  • Still working on getting custody platform integration moving so we can expand the MKR available to delegate. Putting pressure on platforms via speaking to VC’s, DUX offering integration help, the delegates themselves on twitter and potentially now the @Growth-Core-Unit.

Maker Operational Manual

  • Making concrete progress on the Maker Operational Manual under @gala’s management.
  • @mkrorbkr and @AstronautThis producing parameter documentation for the RWA vault parameters and finally covering the Flap and Flop parameters. @LongForWisdom reviewing.
  • @prose11 documenting the governance vote hash-checking process.
  • Someone on PE (I think @Derek?) working on updating the executive audit documentation to cover the DssExecLib stuff.

Onboarding

  • @Sebix now spending the majority of his working-time with us and looking to take on more projects in the coming weeks. Looking to expand into MIPs and forum organisation stuff.
  • @Gala working well on the Maker Operational Manual, may try to expand responsibilities here as her availability allows.
  • @AstronautThis and @mkrorbkr spending additional time on documentation. Moving around our weekly meeting to accommodate more time zones so these guys can sync more effectively with the team.
  • A couple of leads on additional recruits, too early to say anything either way.

Other Governance stuff

Work continues on bug-fixing and additional features. Progress is steady.
