What are the stages of development for a particular LIP?

LIP Stages

We have updated the LIP Guidelines. Here are the main points of change:

  • The guidelines for reaching the status "Proposed" and for proposing a change to the network are less strict
  • A LIP reaches the status "Final" if it is implemented on the chain that is decided to be the Lisk blockchain by the Lisk Foundation.
  • The decision criteria of the Lisk Foundation are made more precise. Decisions with regard to instructing a third party to implement a LIP are based on technical and scientific arguments, feasibility and the objectives of the Lisk Foundation. Decisions with regard to accepting changes/forks are based on several factors, including the acceptance of nodes, delegates and exchanges. You can find the full version of LIP guidelines here.
