Polkadot Standards Proposals (PSPs)

A Polkadot Standards Proposal (PSP) describes standards for the Polkadot ecosystem. The Polkadot Standards Proposal GitHub is a community-based initiative.
PSP process is not supposed to be a substitute for Polkadot Governance process and is meant to focus only on commonly agreed usage patterns rather than protocol adjustments.

PSPs Work Flow

Below is the workflow of a successful PSP:

1. Draft -> 2. Call for Feedback -> 3. Accepted -> 4. Integrated
  1. Draft: A first draft, which is merged into this repo and actively improved together with the community.
  2. Call for Feedback: The PSP will be shared on different channels for additional feedback for at least 2 weeks. The result of this step is either an acceptance of the standard (->Accepted) or the rejection (->Draft).
  3. Accepted: Any further changes are unlikely, and developers can start integrating the PSP. Once a PSP is accepted, a reference implementation needs to be created.
  4. Integrated: The PSP is actively used and a reference implementation exists.

Contributing PSPs

Before you start writing a formal PSP, you should discuss an idea in the various community channels (see the Polkadot community website). A PSP should provide the motivation as well as a technical specification for the feature.

  1. Fork this repository.
  2. In the newly created fork, create a copy of the template.
  3. Fill out the template with the details of your PSP.
  4. Once you have completed the application, click on "create new pull request".
You can’t perform that action at this time.
