Rebranding the Governance Meeting to Giveth DAC Meeting
Tension: While reworking the wiki with Josh I'm again seeing that the naming of this meeting can be confusing, it always has been to me. It would be great if the governance circle would organize governance meetings to discuss all things happening in the governance circle that is linked to its goals (internal & external gov experimentation), but that is not exactly what we do in this meeting. We sometimes use the holacratic governance meeting model for this meeting - and that is probably why we use this name - but very often it is a fireside chat as well. What this meeting is about is the 'management' of the Giveth DAC, so that is how I propose to name it, so people know what to expect during such a meeting.
We have a Comms Circle Meeting, Social Coding Circle Meeting and DApp Dev Circle Meeting. We have no Governance Circle Meeting (which was a conscious decision at the time). We do have a meeting to discuss the overall governance of the Giveth DAC that comprises these four circles. This is the Giveth DAC Meeting.
Rename our weekly Governance Meeting to Giveth DAC Meeting.
If this passes I will take it upon me to change the naming in the appropriate places.
This will help people to distinguish better between governance initiatives and experimentation (which they can model for their own DAO/DACs) and Giveth DAC activities. (will make nav on the wiki easier/clearer too!)

I find the the name Giveth DAC equally challenging. I think you need one place for the 'team' to hang out once a week. I would argue it should be called the Giveth 'team meeting' because it's easily understood. Its a general team meeting that lets people update each other on what they are doing, management points etc. It becomes the one key weekly meeting for Giveth whereas all other meetings are more focused and specific to comms, fundraising, social coding, dapp etc.

Reading through all this - I am not sure where I stand. On one hand we invented this fancy DAC term, on the other governance is an overblown word in blockchain, but I like Loreleis points about tradition and that indeed this is the one meeting that always in the end was about governance.
To bring some chaos: We could also name it "The weekly meeting" =)
