Why is the first batch of LIPs published as draft on GitHub without mailing list stage?
The first batch of published LIPs are representative of the research completed by Lightcurve which has been deemed complete by the Lisk Foundation. They are designed to “set the bar” on how our LIPs will be written and push development progress forward into an initial direction on our roadmap.
The LIPs have a “Draft” status within the GitHub repository. Therefore they are still open to feedback, change, rejection, and withdrawal.
Each LIP will be posted to its own thread of discussion on the mailing list. There will still be plenty of time for discussion before any network proposal is made.
