Dear Kusama community,
This proposal is a continuation of two previous milestone proposals aimed at improving the Kusama OpenGov. The first proposal, Milestone 0, addressed OpenGov issues by developing a proposal and audit templates, initiating community discussions, and creating audit reports. The second proposal, Milestone 0.5, expanded the initial project by introducing the program to onboard additional proposal Auditors to enhance the decentralization and accuracy of score results.
In the previous period, we successfully completed a total of 54 audits, of which 19 were conducted by auditor candidates. One of the candidates, Abdulbee successfully completed the full auditor onboarding process being approved by Kusama community via an on-chain OpenGov tip.
An additional challenge in the current proposal evaluation process is the lack of constructive feedback during the discussion phase. To address this, appointed auditors will shift their focus by becoming more involved in the earlier phases of proposal development. This proactive approach will help proposers receive feedback and address potential weaknesses in their proposals before they are submitted onchain, giving them time to evaluate the feedback and make improvements.
In Milestone 1, the primary objective is to continue onchain proposal audits, further expand Auditor tasks, continue collaboration with Polkassembly and introduce Auditor and Reviewer roles.
To ensure transparency and community involvement, our main goal is to transfer the Audit process to the Kusama community. This will be achieved by moving the Audit report work to the post-paid OpenGov Tips, where approved auditors will be compensated for their efforts. This approach ensures fairness and accountability in the process while keeping it open to the community.
In this proposal, we present the continuation of the Audit team work, with the aim to deliver Audit Reports for 60 treasury proposals over a period of 2 months. Our goal is to ensure that these proposals receive the evaluation and feedback they deserve. All work will be post-paid through self-submitted tips, with auditors initiating self-tips for their completed proposal audits. To avoid overloading the treasury track, a tip must cover compensation for a minimum of 5 audit reports.
To effectively evaluate project proposals using the Audit Template, it is essential to have an objective and standardized grading system in place. The following grading criteria are taken into consideration by the audit team when creating audit reports on proposals
Milestone 1.5 is a continuation of Referenda #67 - Proposal Extension with the goal to continue education and onboarding of additional community auditors.
