Weekly MIPs Update #68

January’s Formal Submission Window is Now Open

:calendar: — RFC and FS Dates for reference and for existing proposals can be seen here.

The Formal Submission Window is now open and will remain so until and including Wednesday. Proposals that have fulfilled their 28-day Feedback Period and their 7-day Frozen Period can be formally submitted into January’s Governance Cycle.

I’ll be reaching out to authors of eligible proposals to learn who is formally submitting. Alternatively, authors can beat me to it and reply in the thread of the relevant proposal that they are formally submitting it.

Without further ado, these are the elegible proposals for January:
