How to: Create DAO Proposals on GitHub

Creating proposals for the Aggregated Finance DAO is a very simple process. It all starts with GitHub, where all the proposal discussion needs to happen:

GitHub - aggregatedfinance/agfi-dao: Aggregated Finance DAO Proposal Management
Aggregated Finance DAO Proposal Management. Contribute to aggregatedfinance/agfi-dao development by creating an account on GitHub.

If you want to be involved in the discussions on GitHub then you will need to create a GitHub account. It's a very easy process, just follow the prompts:

Getting started with your GitHub account - GitHub Docs
With a personal account on GitHub, you can import or create repositories, collaborate with others, and connect with the GitHub community.

The AGFI DAO is a "repository" on GitHub. Normally repositories are used to store code, but in our case we'll just use it for discussion and information about the Proposals for the DAO.

Did you know Ethereum uses GitHub for all of its proposals too? You can check out the Ethereum proposals here: https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs

Every Proposal is handled as an Issue in the DAO repository.

You will see all the open proposals here when you view the Issues section. If you want to start a discussion about a new proposal, click New Issue on the top-right of the page:

There are some templates you can use to make a new proposal. After the DAO gets set up most of these will be "Treasury Allocation" proposals. If none of these proposals meet your needs you can also choose Open a blank issue at the bottom.

Now all you need to do is fill out the details. Give it a title that makes sense, and fill in the details about what the proposal will do and why it should be voted on. Once you've filled in all the information, click Submit new issue:

And that's all you have to do! The proposal will be open for anyone to review, comment, and discuss if it should move to a formal vote.

The Proposal Managers may edit or reject your proposal if it doesn't satisfy all the information needed to move it to a formal vote. Every vote needs a justification as to why it should happen, otherwise why do it at all?

If we look at the first proposal, we can see replies and all the history of the discussion underneath it:

If you want to voice your opinion, you can write your own response to the proposal at the bottom by adding a comment:

Your voice is essential to keeping the DAO alive, so set up your GitHub account today and be a part of this AGFI journey!
