Proposal Lifecycle -- Suggested Improvements

Let’s use this thread to discuss ideas to improve the Proposal Lifecycle.

I’ll kick it off – per the meta-governance housekeeping decision we made during the last governance call, we should use the 1RC prefix for all proposals until they have been submitted to the phase-4 Snapshot vote. This will keep the numbering of the votes sequential and avoid overlap.

I’ll be updating the documentation site shortly to reflect this change. I’ll also edit the titles of existing proposals to keep the forum layout synced.
