This document describes the process by which interested parties may propose changes to the Magma project. Proposals can be any size and cover any topic, e.g. process updates or architectural changes.
To start, consider skimming the existing Magma project proposals.
Proposals are tracked as GitHub Issues, using the following labels
#proposals Slack channel receives notifications when new proposals are created.
Submit a proposal
Submit an Issue
Submit a GitHub Issue following the "Proposal" template.
The proposal contents should be clear and concise. Aim for a "one-pager" style.
The project maintainers (or the TSC, if you applied the
tsc label) will discuss the proposal and make comments on the Issue. One of four outcomes will be communicated via labels
status: acceptedproposal was accepted
status: rejectedproposal was rejected
status: withdrawnproposal was withdrawn by the author
status: needs design docproposal needs a design document
If your proposal is accepted, ensure actionable next-steps have been outlined and initiated.
Optional: needs design doc
If your proposal is labeled as needing a design doc, this means your proposal is nominally accepted, but needs to progress from the one-pager GitHub Issue into a fleshed-out design.
This design doc can start as e.g. a Google Doc or Quip Doc, but needs to eventually make its way into a pull request to add it to the project's Docusaurus.
When writing your design doc, consider following this standardized design doc template.
