Is there a specific timeline for a LIP to be discussed or submitted?
No. We will not impose any timelines or deadlines on the LIP process, e.g. duration on the mailing list, or duration as a LIP draft on GitHub.
Lightcurve will submit its own LIPs to the mailing list once its research has been completed. This will be done well in advance of any implementation work to ensure the community has enough time to give their feedback and consent towards any proposal. We encourage all LIP champions to do the same as per the LIP Purpose and Guidelines.
However a LIP’s status may be changed to “deferred” by the LIP Editor if no further progress is being made on the LIP.
