Maker Improvement Proposals


Proposal Ideas This category is dedicated to Maker Community members who want to discuss their ideas, have pre-proposal discussions, and collaborate on future Maker Improvement Proposals.

This is when the Conception status is granted to a MIP.

The timeline for the RFC phase is defined by its Feedback Period and Frozen Period. In order to move to the next phase, it needs to satisfy the transition criteria listed below:
