Greetings Stakepool Operators! One of the things that the Cardano Foundation has been working on is a clear avenue for community proposals. A formal communication process was needed on how to achieve compatibility, to add features that depend on integrations and to agree on standards.
We are pleased to announce the initial draft of the Cardano Improvement Proposals (CIPs) process, which are building blocks for future platform development – a move towards standardization and better quality control for proposals.
Cardano Improvement Proposals (CIPs) are formalized documents for the Cardano community, providing information or describing new features or processes. CIPs contain the technical specifications for the proposed changes and act as a single source of truth for the community.
- Preview CIP 1 which contains the proposed guidelines for CIPs;
- Leave your feedback: https://cardanocommunity.typeform.com/to/QAikTo.
Please ensure all your feedback is captured in the survey form or in the ‘Issues’ of Cardano Foundation’s GitHub. A polite reminder that Typeform and GitHub are the only two places where feedback will be captured and assessed.
As we look forward to the continuing development of the platform, and ultimately the on-chain governance process that will come with Voltaire era functionality, now is the time to start formalizing and standardizing how we define, curate and formalize proposals for improvement. This is an early but important step.
