Some important changes in Strapi require some thoughts to be put into the design phase before starting working on a PR.
The RFC (Request For Comments) process will help us create consensus among the core team and include as much feedback as possible from the community, for these upcoming changes.
- Clone the repository.
- Copy the
xxxx-template.md(leave the xxxx at the beginning) file to the rfcs folder.
- Write your RFC in the copied file.
- Make a pull request (create a link to the rendered RFC file in the PR description).
- Wait for comments and try building consensus while integrating feedbacks into the proposal.
- Eventually, the core team will decide whether the RFC should be accepted or rejected.
- In case the PR is rejected, a core team member will close the PR with a comment explaining the rational for rejection.
- In case the proposal is accepted the PR will be merged and the RFC will become 'active'.
Once an RFC becomes active, then authors may implement it and submit the feature as a pull request to the Strapi repository.
A RFC being 'active' does not necessarily mean the feature will ultimately be merged; it does mean that the core team has agreed to it in principle and are open to merging it.
Furthermore, the fact that a given RFC has been accepted and is 'active' implies nothing about what priority is assigned to its implementation, nor whether anybody is currently working on it.
Each week the team will attempt to review some portion of then open RFC pull requests.
