Absorb this responsibility (and mr garbanzo) into the foundation. Solo proposals with no oversight, coverage, or cohesive access to an organization is not how support will be effective.

I would argue there’s plenty of oversight in terms of his work being quite public. His KPI is to respond to all customer issues within a reasonable amount of time. I would argue reasonable is within 12-24 hours (as most support operates like this), and he does WAY better than that, and has a proven track record. Also his proposals are always for 3 months which leaves a lot of room for evaluation and brings up his quality of work every 3 months which is also more frequent than what you see in more centralized companies who mayyyybe have reviews 2 x’s a year.

While I’m not opposed to the idea of bringing support into SNF, it would also beg the question if that role would belong under SNF or Labs…and I love the decentralized nature of the role as it stands now with a good amount of oversight.

also - thanks @MrGarbonzo for the good work this past proposal term.
