== Proposals ==
+
Modifications to the [[Style|style guidelines]], adding types of [[Advanced Relationship|relationship]]s, and other similar changes happen through the following user-initiated process.
  
Changes to MusicBrainz are made using this proposal process.
+
==Request==
  
The process is simple.  Someone has an idea, either for something new, or for a change to how something existing is done. After discussion of the idea has taken place, one person takes control of the idea.  This person is then known as the Idea Champion for that proposal.  The Idea Champion has the responsibility for moving the idea from a vague concept to a clear proposal, then working for Style Council passage of the proposal.
+
If you would like to make a change, improvement or addition, it should be
 +
requested by opening a ticket in [[jira:STYLE|our bug tracker]]. If any relevant previous discussion has happened (on the mailing lists, forums, IRC or even edit notes), be sure to link to that discussion from the ticket.
  
Though it is somewhat dated, [[Turning_Your_Ideas_Into_Reality|Turning Your Ideas into Reality]] is well worth a read.
+
Make sure that the ticket is pretty clear on what exactly is being requested. While it’s not necessary for the requester to write the final documentation, it’s perfectly acceptable to submit a draft that makes the request more clear. If your proposed change is a non-trivial change, please include as much detail as possible in your ticket.
  
=== Definitions ===
+
==Decision==
;Idea Champion
+
The Style Leader/BDFL ([[User:Reosarevok|reosarevok]]) will review the request and decide how to proceed. Trivial and/or obviously useful additions are very likely to be accepted immediately. In the cases where the Style Leader feels more community input is needed, they’ll request it, by calling for an informational vote and/or initiating further discussion. Please note that any vote called by the Style Leader will not be binding; the BDFL will not be required to act in accordance with the vote outcome.
: The person who currently is handling a proposal.
 
;Style Council
 
: Any members of the [http://lists.musicbrainz.org/mailman/listinfo/musicbrainz-style Style mailing list] who wish to take part in discussion of a proposal. There is no formal membership to the style council. If you are an interested contributor to [[MusicBrainz]] and reasonably well informed about existing [[Style Guideline|StyleGuideline]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s, [[Development|MusicBrainz development]], and the general culture of the project, you are welcome to subscribe to the [http://lists.musicbrainz.org/mailman/listinfo/musicbrainz-style Style mailing list] and join the discussions.  Also see the [[History_Of_The_Style_Council|history of the Style Council]].
 
  
== Process for Idea Champions ==
+
Once enough input has been achieved for the Style Leader to make an informed decision, they will document the decision on the relevant ticket and then update the needed documentation/links.
# Come up with an idea for something new or something that should be changed.  While somewhat out of date, the points raised on [[Checklist_For_Style_Changes|this former checklist for style changes]] are still worth consideration as part of your proposal.
 
# Create a new wikipage for the proposal.  This should be located at <nowiki>http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/Proposal:(proposal name)</nowiki>.
 
#* The proposal template should be at the top of the page:
 
<dl><dd><dl><dd><dl><dd><pre>

:: '''proposal''': The RFC number from this page
 
:: '''rfc, rfv, status''': Leave these blank
 
:: '''discussion''': A link to the initial discussion (IRC, forums, or style list) of an idea.
 
:: '''champion''': You.
 
:: '''ar''': If your proposal changes or adds an [[Advanced_Relationship|Advanced Relationship]], then "true", otherwise leave the value blank.
 
:: '''style''': If your proposal changes or adds a style guideline, then "true", otherwise leave the value blank.
 
:: '''trac''': The [http://bugs.musicbrainz.org trac] ticket number for your proposal, if there is one.
 
<li> Send a RFC announcement to the [http://lists.musicbrainz.org/mailman/listinfo/musicbrainz-style style list].
 
:* The RFC should have "RFC:" at the beginning of the subject line.
 
:* The body of the email should contain:
 
::# The expected expiration date for the RFC.
 
::# A brief summary of the proposal.
 
::# A link to the proposal's wikipage.
 
::# Links to any previous discussion (IRC, style list, users list, forums, etc) which led to the proposal.
 
<li> During the period where the RFC is active, discussion of it will occur on the style list.
 
:* Anyone can change the proposal's wikipage, though it is encouraged that any changes which go beyond minor formatting, spelling, or example changes should be left to the Idea Champion.
 
::* If you are not the Idea Champion, and you have sufficient disagreement with the proposal that you feel an entirely different proposal needs to be created, a new proposal wikipage should be created, for which you would become that proposal's Idea Champion.  '''Do not''' rewrite the original proposal wikipage and attempt to take over the idea from the original Idea Champion!
 
:* Where there is disagreement, the Idea Champion should work to find consensus.
 
::* On minor points, the Idea Champion maintains control of the proposal.  However, for the Idea Champion, you ignore dissent at the risk of the proposal - disagreement can easily become vetos during the RFV period.
 
::* If discussion on a RFC is still ongoing, and there is not yet agreement that the proposal is ready to pass, the RFC period may be extended.  The RFC period only defines a minimum, not a maximum, time period for debate.
 
<li> Before a RFC may move into RFV status, another style council member must endorse it with "+1" in an email to the style list, indicating that, in its current state, it has been reviewed and is acceptable to that member. Any changes to RFC text prior to RFV clear that +1 and reset this requirement.
 
<li> When the RFC's initial period has expired, the Idea Champion (or a Style Leader) will send out a RFV for the proposal.
 
:* The RFV email should have "RFV:" at the beginning of the subject line.
 
:* The body of the email should contain:
 
::# The expected passage date for the RFV.
 
::# A brief summary of the proposal, including a summary of any changes which have been made since the RFC.
 
::# A link to the proposal's wikipage.
 
<li> During the RFV period, any member of the style council may veto the RFV.  However, vetos '''must''' have merit (no vetos simply because "I don't like this proposal").  Vetos must be publicly cast, on the style list, and should detail what problems are believed to remain in the RFV, and what changes could be made such that the veto would be cleared.  These suggested changes must be reasonable; if the changes would entail a rewrite, or rethink, of the proposal itself, then a counter-proposal wikipage should be created, and the decision as to which proposal will pass should be left to the style council.
 
:* If a RFV receives a veto, the proposal reverts to a RFC.  There is no minimum time period at this point, but no new RFV should be attempted until the problems raised in any vetos have been discussed and/or addressed.  A proposal may revert to a RFC, or have replacement RFCs sent, as many times as is needed.
 
<li> If the end of the RFV period is reached, and no vetos have been cast, then the proposal has passed. The Idea Champion is now responsible for ensuring that the changes described by the proposal are enacted (changing wiki pages, entering edits, creating trac or jira tickets, etc.).  This includes remembering to remove the proposal template from the proposal's wikipage!
 
</ol>
 
  
=== Time Periods ===
+
Unreasonable requests, or requests that, while useful, would require unreasonable amounts of developer time that just won’t be available to MusicBrainz anytime soon, will be rejected.
* '''RFC''': 7 days
 
* '''RFV''': 2 days
 
  
=== Style Leaders ===
+
==Update==
* [[User:BrianFreud|BrianFreud]]
+
Updates to style issues will be posted regularly (every two weeks, as long as something has changed at all) on the [https://blog.metabrainz.org/ MetaBrainz blog]. The changes themselves might be implemented earlier than that, although major changes will generally happen in the same schedule as new code releases.

=== Definitions ===
 
 
 
;RFC (Request for Change)
 
: The initial discussion period for any proposal
 
;RFV (Request for Veto)
 
: The decision period for any proposal
 
;Style Leader
 
: They guide the process and keep it from getting stuck. If the council cannot reach consensus they will make a decision. This position was previously called "secretary".
 
;Style Elder
 
: The benevolent dictator of [[MusicBrainz]] [[Style Issue|style issues]]. If the process goes off the rails, or if someone disputes the style leaders' decisions, the elder steps in.
 
 
 
==Special Procedures==
 
 
 
===Has Cover Art At, Has Lyrics At, and Has Score At Relationship Types===
 
These relationships each only allow links to whitelisted sites.  To add any site to the whitelist for any one of these [[Advanced Relationship|advanced relationships]], the following additional procedure '''must''' be followed.
 
 
 
# Add the site to the 'in-progress' list on the relevant page for the AR. <!-- TODO: Create and add links to these. -->
 
# Using the [[Proposals#Process for Idea Champions|normal proposal process]], send a RFC requesting the addition of the site.
 
#:* The RFC should be limited to covering only 1 site.
 
#:* The RFC must provide rationale and evidence for why the site can reasonably be believed to have permission to contain the content to which we would be linking.
 
# The Style Council will then make sure that the site itself is legal; that it has a right/license/whatever to store the content (lyrics/scores/cover art) which which the relationships would be link.
 
#:*  If any situation arises where "legal" is questionable depending on local laws, MusicBrainz is based in California, so US/California law wins.
 
# Once the RFV has passed, permission must be obtained, in writing (email is fine), from the site which would be added to the whitelist.
 
#:* This permission may be requested prior to the passage of the RFV.
 
Only when permission has been received '''and''' a RFV has passed may the site be added as a whitelisted site for the applicable [[Advanced Relationship Type|relationship type(s)]].
 
 
 
===Adding new instrument types===
 
These do not go through the Style Council process.  Instead, they use [[Talk:Advanced Instrument Tree|the instrument addition process]].
 
 
 
== Current Proposals ==
 
=== Next New Proposal Number ===
 
 
 
Next new proposal number: 287
 
 
 
''Proposal numbers 112 - 200 and 206 - 250 have been reserved for RFCs to fill in holes in the guidelines and documentation.''
 
 
 
=== Style Proposals ===
 
Categorized as [[:Category:Proposed Style|Category:Proposed Style]].  [[Talk:Proposals#Style_Proposals|Passed proposals waiting to be implemented]] and [[Talk:Proposals#Style_Proposals_2|closed proposals]] are found on the talk page.

=== Pre-Reserved RFCs for cleaning up documentation and guidelines ===
 
These are all official entities, relationships, guidelines, or other things which have some minor element which is missing.  Most are only a sentence or two, but need an RFC to be made official; this table lists those, and pre-reserves RFC numbers for these future RFCs.  As these are intended to be truly short RFCs of only a sentence or two (in almost all cases), most won't actually have proposal pages, only proposal emails.

Latest revision as of 20:17, 28 April 2020

Modifications to the style guidelines, adding types of relationships, and other similar changes happen through the following user-initiated process.

Request

If you would like to make a change, improvement or addition, it should be requested by opening a ticket in our bug tracker. If any relevant previous discussion has happened (on the mailing lists, forums, IRC or even edit notes), be sure to link to that discussion from the ticket.

Make sure that the ticket is pretty clear on what exactly is being requested. While it’s not necessary for the requester to write the final documentation, it’s perfectly acceptable to submit a draft that makes the request more clear. If your proposed change is a non-trivial change, please include as much detail as possible in your ticket.

Decision

The Style Leader/BDFL (reosarevok) will review the request and decide how to proceed. Trivial and/or obviously useful additions are very likely to be accepted immediately. In the cases where the Style Leader feels more community input is needed, they’ll request it, by calling for an informational vote and/or initiating further discussion. Please note that any vote called by the Style Leader will not be binding; the BDFL will not be required to act in accordance with the vote outcome.

Once enough input has been achieved for the Style Leader to make an informed decision, they will document the decision on the relevant ticket and then update the needed documentation/links.

Unreasonable requests, or requests that, while useful, would require unreasonable amounts of developer time that just won’t be available to MusicBrainz anytime soon, will be rejected.

Update

Updates to style issues will be posted regularly (every two weeks, as long as something has changed at all) on the MetaBrainz blog. The changes themselves might be implemented earlier than that, although major changes will generally happen in the same schedule as new code releases.
