Docs: CAPs Docs: SEPs

This repository is home to Core Advancement Proposals (CAPs) and Stellar Ecosystem Proposals (SEPs).

Similar to BIPs and EIPs, CAPs and SEPs are the proposals of standards to improve the Stellar protocol and related client APIs.

CAPs deal with changes to the core protocol of the Stellar network. Please see the process for CAPs.
