The current IIP editors are:

IIP Editor Responsibilities

For each new IIP that comes in, an editor does the following:

  • Read the IIP to check if it is ready: sound and complete. The ideas must make technical sense, even if they don’t seem likely to get to final status.

  • The title should accurately describe the content.

  • Check the IIP for language (spelling, grammar, sentence structure, etc.), markup (Github flavored Markdown), code style

If the IIP isn’t ready, the editor will send it back to the author for revision, with specific instructions.

Once the IIP is ready for the repository, the IIP editor will:

  • Assign an IIP number (generally the PR number or, if preferred by the author, the Issue # if there was discussion in the Issues section of this repository about this IIP)

  • Merge the corresponding pull request

  • Send a message back to the IIP author with the next step.

The IIP editors monitor IIP changes, and correct any structure, grammar, spelling, or markup mistakes we see.

The editors don’t pass judgment on IIPs. They merely do the administrative & editorial part.
