Title: [ARFC] Network deployment ARFC template
Authors: @Kene_StableLab, @MarcZeller - Aave-Chan Initiative
In line with the amendments made to the Aave Governance process, it is imperative to introduce an ARFC Template for deploying Aave on a new Network; this proposal aims to set the standard for deploying Aave on new networks.
Creating Standards is essential to improving the Aave Governance Process; through this template proposal, we hope to begin the first step in implementing several standards that will form the foundation for how proposals in various categories are written before being presented to the Aave DAO.
Upon passing this proposal, all prospective proposal authors will be required to follow the Network Deployment Template, as stipulated in the Appendix of this proposal.
The Aave-Chan Initiative (ACI) & StableLabs are not compensated in any form for creating this ARFC proposal. This ARFC has been prepared solely to facilitate community discussion.
- Gather feedback and input from the Aave community on the proposed Network Deployment Template.
- Refine the template based on community feedback.
- If consensus is reached and the template is refined, submit the ARFC for a snapshot vote for final approval.
