Dat Enhancement Proposals

#dat IRC channel on freenode datproject/discussions docs

This repository contains a series of "Dat Enhancement Proposal" (DEP) documents, part of the dat protocol development and standardization process.

Accepted proposals will be viewable at datprotocol.com. New (draft) proposals and discussion can be viewed on github under "Pull requests".
