[UEP, proposed] <UEP title>
Complete each section using the guidelines in the code below. These guidelines should be removed before finally submitting the UEP.
If you're familiar with the UEP process, then to help speed up the process a blank template without comments is included in the subsequent post.
[Thanks to Peter for the template and structure].
Code: Select all
[b]Name:[/b] - This should be a short but descriptive name. [b]Status:[/b] - Should be one of proposed (voting still open), withdrawn (maintainer decided to withdraw the proposal), accepted or rejected. A rejected proposal can be resubmitted by changing the status to 'Proposed (retry)', this resets the voting list and voting term. The status should also be shown in the topic header ('[UEP, <status>]'). [b]Proposal maintainer:[/b] - The proposal maintainer (deprecated). Due to the way phpBB works with editing posts the proposal maintainer is by default the original poster. If the original poster can't maintain the proposal the proposal should be written completely within code tags along with a request if anyone else wants to maintain it. The code tags cause the actual phpBB code to be shown in the post, which makes it easier to copy the proposal. Note: in recent discussion this point has been deprecated, you're welcome to include it, but it ain't necessary anymore (people can read the phpBB author line). [b]Categories:[/b] - Enter a category which is applicable. This is for providing indexes. Currently there are no categories defined, but please use common sense and the categories of others when available. The / notation means 'subcategory of'. [b]Errata:[/b] - The actual errata text (this comes in the place of the abstract in earlier revisions of this post). [b]Problem:[/b] - The problem with the current situation (describe the current situation too). [b]Solution:[/b] - The proposed solution to cope with the perceived problem. [b]Pros:[/b] - What is good about the proposal. [b]Cons:[/b] - What is bad about the proposal. [b]Rationale:[/b] - Why is an errata needed, why is this solution the best and why do the pros outweigh the cons. [b]Discussion:[/b] - Links to relevant discussion threads. Add summaries of the discussion here. [b]Voting started at:[/b] - Enter the date the thread was created. Please use the format: DD MMM YYYY. [b]Voting ends at:[/b] - Enter the closing date for the UEP. Where possible the end date should be two weeks from the start date. Use the same format as above.
