For the past several weeks, the DXdao community has been working to reach a consensus on updated Contributor Guidelines that will be available to new and existing DXdao workers and the DXdao community.
The reason and need for this update is to streamline worker development and DXdao internal communications. As DXdao grows we want it to grow in a scalable manner, and a unified place for basic DXdao information helps us to get new and existing workers on the same page as efficiently as possible.
The Contributor Guidelines addresses worker onboarding, compensation, communications, DXdao structure, and general conduct in one place. Some of the topics and documents in the guidelines have already been agreed upon. However, most of the topics have either been updated or are completely new.
There’s a lot of content here, but we’d appreciate any comments and / or criticisms on what you like or want changed.

I’m currently using the google doc format so that folks can make comments / criticisms. Once we’ve reached a final consensus on this, I’ll submit an Alchemy proposal, and if enacted, this info will be published on IPFS and included on our website.
