Upgrading the Aragon Governance organization

With the release of Aragon 0.7 Bella, organizations now have the ability to upgrade their apps to the most recent versions from the organization’s App Center. This is the first time (that we’re aware of) that end-users of a decentralized app have been given the ability to upgrade their app - including the smart contracts - independent of the developer.

With Aragon Network Vote #3 just a few weeks away, we want to give voters the best experience possible, which includes adopting all of the improvements that have been made to the apps used by the Aragon Governance organization. To this end we are scheduling a vote to upgrade the apps of the governance.aragonproject.eth organization to their latest versions. All ANT holders are invited to participate in this historic first vote to upgrade the apps of the Aragon Governance organization.

The vote to upgrade the apps of the Aragon governance organization is scheduled to begin on July 15, 2019 at 16:00 UTC.

The vote will use the same Voting app as used for Meta track Aragon Governance Proposals, so voting will be open for 48 hours, requiring >66.66..6% support and >0% minimum acceptance quorum for proposals to be approved. This means as long as more than approximately two-thirds of tokens that participate vote “yes” on the proposals, they will be approved.

The apps that will be upgraded are: Vault, Voting, and Finance.

Voting “yes” will support adopting the upgrades to the latest version of these apps as of the time the vote has started. Voting “no” will support staying on the current versions of the apps.

The changes that will be adopted with each upgrade include bug fixes, feature enhancements, and user experience improvements, including faster app loading thanks to better caching, all of which adds up to a better experience for ANT holders when they are using the apps in the Aragon Governance organization.

How to vote on upgrading the Aragon governance apps

The voting process is the same as it is for voting on Aragon Governance Proposals, so if you have experience and know how to vote, then you can skip straight to the Voting app URL below to participate in the vote at the designated time. Instructions for voting with raw transactions are also included at the end of this post.

All ANT holders as of July 15, 2019 at 16:00 UTC (approximately) will be eligible to vote “yes” or “no” on upgrading the apps of the Aragon governance organization. The vote will last for 48 hours and then the results will be locked in via the Aragon Voting app.

The URL of the Voting app you will use for voting on the app upgrades is:

https://mainnet.aragon.org/#/governance.aragonproject.eth/0xcfee4d3078f74197ce77120dbfe6d35f443cab1c

Note that as one of the oldest Aragon organizations on the Ethereum mainnet, governance.aragonproject.eth may take 10-20 minutes to load depending on how fast the nodes you're connected to are. If you experience any issues viewing the upgrade votes, please give the app time to load. This loading time will be improved during future votes if the proposal to upgrade the Voting app is approved!

Participating in the vote will not transfer any ANT from your wallet. The only funds that will be sent are the ETH used to pay gas for the vote transaction. Voting only requires interacting with the correct Voting app address; the ANT contract doesn’t need to be interacted with at all.
When the vote is proposed by the Aragon Association board at 16:00 UTC July 15th, a snapshot of ANT is automatically taken. ANT balances at that time will provide voting power for the vote.

If your ANT is stored by an exchange or an account that won’t be able to sign the vote transaction using one of the methods described below, please move your ANT before 16:00 UTC July 15th to an address that will be able to vote.

After the vote appears in the Voting app and the snapshot is taken, the ANT can be safely transferred back to your other account and you will still be able to vote with the address that had the tokens at the time the snapshot was taken.

You can find more detailed instructions for how to vote with your ANT in the Aragon Wiki. If you run into any trouble voting, check the troubleshooting section of the Aragon Knowledge Base, and if the Aragon client continues to not work for any reason then try voting with the raw transaction data below.

Raw vote transaction data
If you are voting from an offline wallet using MyCrypto or another tool for signing raw transactions, you will need the raw vote transaction data below. If you have any trouble connecting to the default node used by the Aragon client, you can also use the raw transaction data below to cast your vote using MyCrypto with any of the supported signing options.
