๐Ÿ“ฌ Suggesting a Project

If you think that we should support the development of certain tools or projects that aren't in the Polkadot/Kusama tech stack, feel free to submit a suggestion ("Request for Proposal") using the process described below. We are particularly interested in supporting projects that could be leveraged by other builders in our ecosystem.

For a list of previous Requests for Proposal and their status, see our separate RFP page below.

Submit an idea:

If you have an idea for a project or would like to highlight an area in which you'd like to see teams build, but lack the technical background to create a detailed outline, you're welcome to open an issue or add it to the tech stack as a potentially interesting project. We will review your suggestion and, if necessary, will create an RFP based on it and reach out to teams able to build it.

Submit an RFP (Request for Proposals):

Ideas generally have better chances of being implemented if they're presented in a project outline format that can be picked up straight away by a team, so if you have a good concept of the milestones required to bring your project to life, you can follow the process below and directly submit an RFP:

  1. Fork this repository.
  2. In the newly created fork, create a copy of the suggestion template (rfps/ inside the rfps folder. Make sure you create a new file and copy the contents of the template into the new one, and do not modify the template file directly.
  3. Name the file after your idea:
  4. Fill out the template with the project details. Please include as many details as possible.
  5. Once you're done, create a pull request in our main Grants-Program repository. The pull request should only contain one new fileโ€”the Markdown file you created from the template.
  6. You will see the same template as for creating an application. Please replace it with the RFP PR template.
  7. The RFP will be accepted and merged as soon as it receives three approvals from W3F Grants Committee members.
