Thanks @aeuser999 for bringing this proposal to my attention. I have been super busy over recent days helping others (@Zaradar) to establish the terra-rebels github development organisation, and so I have not been so active in this forum recently.
The terra-rebels development team (now with around 15 members) has been formed from a group of experienced blockchain developers and cloud/devops engineers (including a distinguished professor of computer science at a prestigious US university).
Our objective is to provide a capable and experienced software development organisation that is capable of maintaining the Terra Classic codebase now and enhancing it going forward on behalf of the community to deliver new software releases in response to passed community proposals once governance is restored.
The three initial pull requests (PRs) developed by our members (775, 776, and 778) represent different options to re-enable governance only, or governance with swaps and IBC channels (778), all of which were disabled by TFL and validators in contravention to the published governance process. We had little hope that TFL would merge the PRs into their terra-money repository, but that was not their primary purpose.
The idea of producing and publishing these different PRs was firstly to demonstrate to the community our capability as a development team to work with the Terra Classic codebase, and secondly to provide a series of technical options/choices for the community and validator representatives to consider.
We are currently working on an implementation of proposal 3568 which will also include the reactivation of the governance system, and this will be offered to the validator community who were behind that proposal.
The message to the validator community from the Terra Classic developer community is clear that no proposals will be implemented that do not also come with delegation and validator registration reactivated.
The messy codebase, poorly constructed development environment, and deprecated bombay testnet are just a few of the challenges that we face, but I am confident that we have the right people with the right skillsets to overcome them.
You are welcome to join our discord (for anybody who is not there already) to collaborate with us and observe our work first hand:
