Mission Request made by @Chom and originally shared here
Open Source OP Stack Developer Tooling
Delegate Mission Request Summary:
This mission request aims to promote open source developer tooling development and maintenance under the S5 initiative. Developer toolings are important for the adoption of OP Stack and Superchain.
S5 Intent: Intent 1 - Progress towards technical decentralization Proposing Delegate: Proposal Tier: Ember Baseline grant amount: 250,000 OP (10k - 50k OP Each) Should this Foundation Mission be fulfilled by one or multiple applicants: Multiple Submit by: To be set by Grants Council Selection by: Grants Council and Developer Advisory Board Start date: February 1st 2024 Completion date: February 1st 2025
How will this Delegate Mission Request help accomplish the above intent?
Developer toolings play a crucial role in the widespread use of OP Stack and Superchain. These tools simplify the process of developing and deploying OP Stack and Superchain. They also lessen the time and effort required to create and implement the OP Stack chain and dApps that operate across OP Stack chains.
What is required to execute this Delegate Mission Request?:
Developers should have a substantial history of experience in developing tools relevant to the proposal. A background in contributing to related open-source tools is a plus.
For existing open-source toolings, proposals for enhancements or new features to existing open-source tools are required. A detailed development roadmap for the year 2024 must be included in the submission.
The open-source tooling should be primarily aimed at the development and deployment of OP Stack or dApps on OP Stack. If the tooling offers a broad range of features, the proposal should specifically emphasize those aspects related to OP Stack. For instance, if proposing for Viem 2.0 – a general Ethereum client library with functions specific to OP Stack – the focus should be on the implementation of these OP Stack-specific functions.
The proposed developer tooling must be open source.
The grant proposal must receive approval from the Developer Advisory Board.
How should the Token House measure progress towards this Mission?:
Monitor open source GitHub repository for progress
Updates to the Grants Council on project progression at the end (12 months).
How should badgeholders measure impact upon completion of this Mission?:
Assess the extent to which the open source tooling is being utilized and adopted within the relevant community or by target users.
Monitor mentions and discussions about the tooling on various social media platforms and forums.
Analyze key metrics on GitHub such as Issues, Pull Requests, Stars, Watches, and Forks.
My primary concern with this request is that it’s very open-ended. I suspect that, if approved, this request would be swamped with proposals for very different projects. It would ultimately be hard for any reviewer to maintain a consistent set of criteria. Could we instead perhaps use this thread to discuss some specific open source tools that would be interesting for the Collective and rework this proposal to target those specific tools? IMO RPGF does a better job at funding these sort of open-ended requests than missions.
Hey @chom – just wanted to flag this as a proposal that still needs delegate approvals in order to move to a vote. If you are no longer interested in pursuing this proposal – please disregard this message. In order to see the delegates assigned to your proposal those can be found here. The deadline to provide feedback and approvals for Mission Requests is February 7th at 19:00
The Developer Advisory Board has reviewed this Delegate Mission Request, and voted on its acceptance or rejection. The vote results are as follows:
ACCEPT: 6 votes
REJECT: 0 votes
ABSTAIN: 0 votes
therefore, the Developer Advisory Board accepts this delegate mission request with the contingency of the specification of tools listed by chom as guideposts be included in the DMR.
The Developer Advisory Board’s primary concern was the open-ended nature. By including specific tools in the DMR, we can guide applicants to what we are looking for. Open-source, ecosystem specific tools (like those listed) will lead toward more technical decentralization.
