What is a template
The best way to kickstart an Aragon organization is by using a template. Templates are a set of smart contracts that will create an organization from scratch and configure it according to some provided parameters.
Because they involve smart contract code, modifying a template, even though it's usually really easy, must be done with extreme care. It is always recommended to do a third party security audit to review the template code when modified.
Aragon creates and have put most of the templates in this repo through an external audit. Despite this, they come without any guarantees; a template we consider secure today may be vulnerable to an unknown security hole discovered down the road. Moreover, once a user has created their organization, they may grant or transfer permissions in a way that makes their organization insecure.
You can find more information about template deployments and their addresses in the deployments repo.
