Expectations of ZCG in 2023

ZCG meeting chair was already proposed by @aquietinvestor since the start of 2022 year. Any “official” recommendations would require a ZIP-1014 change. This topic also follows up to the 2022 committee’s discussion with ZF regarding hours & pay which you can find in the ZCG meeting minutes.

That’s a great idea, someone should check the grant application process with ECC before assuming follow-up funding for applicants. The Filecoin X ECC fund is run by their respective teams and not the ZCG.

Everyone can have an opinion on who should be doing what, most of us are here to build Zcash and extend its feature set. I took the initiative to write the RFP as the ZCG had decided to actively seek developers to build the necessary toolset for Zcash, which was also part of my candidacy announcement. And after learning about ECC’s work on creating language specific bindings and how it could have helped reduce rework for Thorchain integration work that my team was working on: GitHub - zcash-hackworks/zcash-light-client-ffi: Light Client FFI Layer for librustzcash

The RFP was finalized following a deep review of NU5 transactions feature spec and collaboration with ECC engineers, namely @daira and @pacu who volunteered to help beyond their daily workload.

Feel free to make PRs to the ZCG landing site: GitHub - ZcashCommunityGrants/zcashcommunitygrants.github.io: Zcash Community Grants

Thanks to @BrunchTime for helping integrate the live ZEC price and ZCG available funds from the ZF maintained Google Sheet.

@GGuy feel free to ping ZCG members wrt any questions or doubts you might have, there is a lot of discussion & work done in the background to make the meeting minutes happen. Cheers!
