I suppose it wouldn’t be a problem to keep a fork, but more ideal would be a single remote repository that’s considered the canonical spot for discussion and maintenance.
What’s the rationale behind this? I’d understand if the repo was in the Company repo but surely it makes sense in the zcash repo? This, I would think, just makes it harder to find.
My understanding is that the Zcash GitHub orgis the Zcash Company’s GitHub org — but I could be wrong (it’s hard to tell since it does not contain any public members). I would prefer the ZIPs be hosted in an organization separate from the Company. If the ZIPs were to stay there, in my view it would be best to have at least one Foundatoin admin on that org, but I’m obviously biased.
I’d much prefer markdown over mediawiki. Can’t say I’m the biggest restructured text fan but there are a lot of different markups being used as documentation is in rst for example.
I totally understand that as well — I’m not an rst fan which is why I switched back to mediawiki (and since BIPs were/are written in that markup). Markdown would certainly be the simplest option and I’d be open to it reformatting completely in vanilla markdown if current ZIP users/editor/people would generally prefer it.
Right, I don’t think it’s the company’s repo (as that is https://github.com/Electric-Coin-Company) but the company are the only ones with access… Personally I’ve always considered it the project repo and just they never granted anyone else access (which obviously should be very restrictive).
I definitely agree it should be a single repository but that zcash/zips is the more sensible one but that you have write access to it. If you don’t get access then that answers that…
