# Web3-collaboration

This is a public repository to help coordinate our collaboration efforts with teams working in the Web 3 ecosystem. In order to build a better web, the Web3 Foundation will help to coordinate the efforts of teams working towards this common goal. The coordination of efforts will include helping to connect teams, cross-promote the products and protocols, as well as provide strategic [grants](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-collaboration/blob/master/grants/grants.md).

Our view is that the Polkadot platform will play a pivotal role in the Web 3 ecosystem. To get a better idea of how we think about the ecosystem, we invite you to look at our proposed [Web 3 tech stack](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-wiki/wiki/Tech-Stack).

## About us
For more information about the Web3 Foundation please visit the ["About Us"](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-wiki/wiki/Web3-Mission-and-Background/_edit) page on our wiki.

## How this repo will be used
In this repository, we will facilitate collaboration via issue tracking and [grants](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-collaboration/blob/master/grants/grants.md). Essentially, the problems and ideas which we believe to be important will appear on the [issues](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-collaboration/issues) page. It is also possible for project teams to suggest new ideas: to do so simply create a new issue.

### Polkadot ecosystem issues
Here are some of the important issue areas that we would love for the community to collaborate with us on.

Development issues:
* Build core technology.
* Test core technology.
* Create general ecosystem components.

More information on development collaboration can be found in the development collaboration document: [development doc](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-collaboration/blob/master/development.md)

### Web3 ecosystem issues
Please see our development collaboration document for further details: [development doc](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-collaboration/blob/master/development.md)

## Who we are looking for
The ideal candidates are people who can work in a self-directed manner and are able to manage their own time and resources in order to hit the necessary targets. For meetups, it is possible to do this single-handedly although for larger coding projects we expect teams of multiple members will be typical.

The Web3 Foundation is here to provide guidance and cross-team coordination, and in some cases we will be able to provide funding too.

If these issues are of interest to you then please comment on an open issue, or create a new issue, and provide the relevant information (refer to the submission process guidelines).

## Submission process guidelines
To help collaborate with us to build the next generation of the web we would be grateful if you could supply the information listed below about you and your team (where applicable). In cases where funding is also required please add information that pertains the additional points listed below.

### Standard Response Template
Below is a template for responding to issues. If you are offering collaboration help then we would appreciate getting to know the key details as clearly as possible. You are free to modify the template to suit your response, but we are aiming for structured correspondence with the community.

**Template**

* What is the plan:
* Number of people on your team:
* Do you need help from W3F:
* Do you need help from the community:

**Examples**

If you would like to see some example responses then check out the following document in this repo: [response-examples.md](https://github.com/w3f/Web3-collaboration/blob/master/response-examples.md)
