ALP01: Carbon Feedback for Github Issues #1
Proposal: Carbon Feedback for Github Issues
Author(s): Luke Duncan, Aragon et. al.
Last updated: 11/29/2017
Many community governed projects are open source and use Github for project planning and discussion. However, it can be difficult to judge community consensus related to open issues. This proposal suggests using a Carbon Vote inspired mechanism to give a communities token holders the ability to signal their support of an issue.
At a minimum a successful implementation of this proposal would enable the following user stories:
Aragon Signaling App - An initial version of this proposal has already be developed by Aragon for use by ANT holders to participate in governance decisions. It may need some UX improvements to be ready for general use by other organizations.
While this issue describes a basic direct voting approach to signaling, it is possible to introduce more complexity through delegation as well. Adding delegation solves many issues related to rational ignorance, and cost of participation.
Opting to experiment with more advanced voting mechanisms using the carbon vote approach first reduces the need for off-chain scaling solutions for tabulation.

This makes a lot of sense, and we should get a basic but working implementation of the signaling app ready soon. When the UI for 0.5 is finished, we could just deploy a DAO to the mainnet and use the default Voting app with some sort of linking to GitHub Issues -- which in the beginning could be very manual, just having the core team curating the Issues that will become a target for a vote.
