LUNC Community in Limbo over Job Proposal: Risks, Rewards, and Unanswered Questions

Terra Blockchain Successfully Upgrades to v.2.4 Pushing for LUNA Adoption

The LUNC community is abuzz with the debate surrounding the PPJ (passed in #11889), a proposal aimed at improving how jobs and spending are handled within the ecosystem. While its intent is noble – to address community concerns and establish clearer guidelines – the proposal has sparked controversy due to its potential impact on developers and the overall project.

At its core, the PPJ advocates for “payment after approval of completed work through a spending proposal.” This simple statement carries significant weight, effectively placing the financial burden on developers until their work is deemed acceptable by the community. While this minimizes risk for the LUNC treasury, it raises several concerns:

  1. Financial Strain on Developers: Covering server rent, equipment costs, and other job-related expenses upfront becomes a gamble for developers. They not only risk not getting paid but also incurring personal financial losses.
  2. Big Jobs Become Unfeasible: Larger projects requiring months of effort become unrealistic under the PPJ. Few developers can afford to work without pay for extended periods unless funded externally.
  3. Job Scope Ambiguity: The proposal offers no clear definition of “a job,” leaving room for confusion. Can smaller tasks bundled together be considered one job, or should they be broken down and submitted individually?
  4. Simplicity Breeds Complexity: The attempt to simplify the PPJ process may have inadvertently introduced new layers of complication. The lack of specific criteria for success and potential reliance on central entities for approvals could lead to further disagreements within the community.
  5. Governance Challenges: Determining whether deviations from the PPJ are justified in specific cases falls upon the governance system. However, its technical limitations may hinder informed decision-making and lead to further disputes.

Despite the controversy, the PPJ presents an opportunity for open dialogue and a chance to refine the existing framework for job proposals and spending. By acknowledging the concerns raised and working collaboratively, the #LUNC community can find a solution that balances risk mitigation with developer support, paving the way for a more sustainable and efficient project ecosystem.
