This thread is intended for defining Reference Cases for Credit Attribution.
The Original reference cases discussion was for a line graph or chain of dependencies from an early discussion with @decentralion and Evan from Protocol labs. This reference case and others are briefly explored here using some preliminary research infrastucture. See GitHub issues in SourceCred Research for how we are testing and expanding our infrastructure.
There is not necessarily one right answer for how credit should be attributed in a reference case, rather reference cases are simple cases one can reason about how we might want credit to accumulate. I would like this Topic to be used for proposing reference cases, sharing results of experiments on proposed reference cases, and discussing how we think the cred should flow, including discussing how it might need to flow differently depending on context.
