Once an idea has received community feedback, the author has 30 days to fill out a ZIP Draft Template. This is where the author can fully communicate the proposal’s intentions, specifics, and implications. A ZIP will be brought to a vote faster if more effort and research is put into this step.
Once the template is drafted, the proposal is ready for moderator review. The length of the review period varies depending on the level of detail in the draft and how unclear the ZIP could be implemented to benefit the DAO.
Moderator review depends on the proposal’s specifics, but usually includes assessing:
• Necessary steps to implement
• Vendors that may be needed
• The role of the Foundation in implementation
