    • Incentive Program Update: [WIP] Proposal #4
      • Follow up on these Hyperledger action items from prior call: 
        • Can Hyperledger hold the withdrawal keys and hold crypto
        • Can they hold the funds from the transaction fees and distribute them to participating maintainers’ organizations
        • Can Hyperledger commit to using the funds solely for Besu mainnet work
        • Can Hyperledger assign someone on staff as a Besu community manager to help manage the maintainer list, scope out bounties, manage the program from their side
      • Tim from EF reviewed the doc
      • Proposal will move forward on Friday 18 Feb if there is no substantive objection.

        • Some MMs may take sabbaticals
        • Besu community consensus should decide, EF and HLF make final call.
          • Perhaps EF should start and end decision?

        • 1 round of proposals then EF decides
