As part of GovAlpha’s quarterly goals, we want to produce a comprehensive and well-maintained documentation source for participants in Maker Governance. The overall goals are as follows:
- Provide an index of relevant pages that can explain parameters as they are modified in signal requests and votes.
- Help governance participants understand how to intentionally govern the Maker Protocol. Intentionally meaning knowing how to achieve desired goals with the tools and levers available.
- Provide durable access to information regarding how Maker Governance has dealt with various environments and situations in the past, such that it can inform future decision-making.
- Provide information on how the Maker Protocol works at a detailed (but non-technical) level.
With this in mind, are there any resources that you (as a participant in Maker Governance) wish were present in this documentation source?
So far we’re certain we want the following:
- A comprehensive index of governance parameters with plain-English descriptions and considerations to take when considering changes.
- A comprehensive index of in-use protocol modules with plain-English descriptions and explanations of how they operate, who can operate them, etc.
- Instructions on how to audit executive spells.
- Instructions on how to verify poll and executive hashes.
- Links and descriptions of the commonly relied-upon frontend UI’s that show the status of the protocol.
Past that, things are still a little up in the air. So, what would you like to see as part of these resources beyond the above?
