🔀 Pull requests

We encourage pull requests (PRs) from the community, but we suggest that you start with a feature request or a post to the XMTP Community Forums just to do a temperature check. For example, if the PR involves a major change to the XMTP protocol, it must be fleshed out as an XMTP Improvement Proposal before work begins.

If your PR to a repo in the XMTP or XMTP Labs GitHub org is meerged you're eligible to claim this XMTP contributor POAP.

XMTP Improvement Proposals

XMTP Improvement Proposals (XIPs) propose and document updates to XMTP, which may become standards for XMTP clients and applications to adopt.

Is there something your app needs that the protocol doesn’t currently support? Consider creating an XMTP Improvement Proposal (XIP).

Here’s a template you can use to create one.

Take a look at existing XIPs. XIPs are meant to reflect the needs of the XMTP developer community and benefit from your input and expertise.
