Governance Process
So you've figured out a way to improve SWD? Here's how to make it happen.

What is a SWIP?

A SWIP is a proposal to update some function or standard within the SW DAO. SWIPs can vary widely from proposing new products to requesting funds from the SW DAO Treasury, to performing SW DAO smart contract upgrades. The SWIP proposal process largely follows the same behavior as Ethereum's EIP process.
The SW DAO GitBook (what you are reading) is the central repository and source of truth for the status of SWIPs.
