Anyone can submit a draft ZIP. Draft ZIPs are debated by the community at large, then accepted or rejected by the ZIP editors. Currently there are two ZIP editors — Daira Hopwood represents the Electric Coin Company and Deirdre Connolly represents the Zcash Foundation.
Decisions from the ZIP process are written into the Zcash specification, as well as the software that runs the network. The changes are “ratified” on-chain when the majority of the network adopts the upgrade and doesn’t break consensus.
In July, the Foundation released a blog post detailing the governance results and our planned responses. Notably, Amber Baldet and Ian Miers were instated as new members of the Board of Directors.
The Zcash community forum is an open forum for Zcash users and enthusiasts, hosted by the Zcash Foundation. Forum members should strive to be kind, respectful, and interesting. Ideally, your presence in the community should improve the experience for everyone.
