Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?

I would like to thank the Dash Watch team for facilitating the Trust Protectors 2020 Election for the network. There are a lot of new individuals and teams submitting proposals to the network this treasury cycle and we need Dash Watch now more than ever before to hold proposal owners accountable especially those that are new or not well known to the network with no track-record. I wanted to comment here and go on record to show my support.

@DashWatch - do you have a report on DashNewsroom?

I had a call with Alex recently to discuss the possibility of DashWatch undertaking a report on new proposal owners to do a background check and assessment. Alex mentioned he would discuss with the rest of DW and get back to me. Do you have any update on that discussion?

Hi DeepBlue, hope all is well. Yes we plan on doing reports for Dashnewsroom starting this month. We're still trying to frame up what the additional scope what look like in practice for a proposal owner "history" deliverable. Currently, that discussion has been pushed for after the 2020 Trust Protectors election. We intend to re-engage around May 3-4, after the election has been concluded. We would definitely appreciate community feedback their thoughts on this deliverable.
