Opening up the aragon Github organization to community members (A1)

  • Know who are developers of the Aragon organization
  • Label users as Aragon dev community members
  • Transition the GitHub orgs to a more open community of contribution
  • Should start transitioning the Aragon org on Github to be more open and allow users to represent themselves as contributors to the Aragon github org
  • Having a type of badge that show people contribution on diferent topics
  • The biggest challenge is finding contributors outside github who have done valuable stuff in the forum and chat and elsewhere

Major League Hacking / other hackathon participation (A1)

  • Query to see if we are getting involve in this
  • Wondering if we want to start showing up
  • Casual hackathoon that university from Europe and USA organize
  • Action item: define what we need from these hackathons and what are our goals do we want talent or testing? students attracted by 1: novelty and 2: opportunities (such as internship)
  • Maybe we could link that to the 'Aragon Academy'
  • Should we be doing more university outreach going forward? There aren't many left right now
  • The season goes from the Fall to the early Spring
  • North America
  • Europe

How should the GUI & CLI clients support apps without contracts (that may concern only the user, or may provide an UI alternative) ? (Mesh)

  • Having the ability to use CLI extensions
  • Have a way to install and uninstall them, how they comunicate with each other
  • the pando app could extend th cli
  • Might be good to build an extension pathway around building apps that don't need contracts
  • An idea is to use a microkernel architecture and be closelly related with the UI
  • How to deal with apps that don't have contracts?
    • Decouple this between diferent APM repos?
