Thinking of starting a new EIP, how is that process?

Nice! I wrote a short summary of my idea. No standardized specifications yet. ethereum/EIPs#2204

Hi guys, I am not sure this is the right place to ask my question. Anyone knows how to handle the chainId is greater than 1 byte?
I got the error: Request uses conventional signature and chainID is not 1 (12349**)
Nick Savers
@nicksavers
@yeobill in which software do you get the error?
yeobill
@yeobill
I am using web3j (java)
@nicksavers this is a private chain Id which is greater than 1 bytes (255)

@yeobill https://gitter.im/web3j/web3j should be able to support.

How often does the EIP automerger bot run? @axic
I don't understand why this one wasn't auto-merged after approved ethereum/EIPs#2219
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
@1blockologist It's triggered by the build. There's a bit of a race condition and occasionally it runs before Github is informed the build is complete.
It didn't run there because editors must approve any change in status.
Eric Lamison-White
@1blockologist
@Arachnid what editors?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
The EIP editors.
Eric Lamison-White
@1blockologist
These are different than the ones that originally wrote EIP 918?
Because it says approved by one of them
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
Those are the authors. The editors maintain the EIPs repository.
Authors can't approve their own status changes, or I could write a draft and push it straight to final tomorrow.
Eric Lamison-White
@1blockologist
ah, okay, how to get the attention of one of them?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
You just did. :)
Eric Lamison-White
@1blockologist
great, I was wondering then, is it really necessary to merge something in as last call, for it to be in last call?
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
How else would anyone know it was last call?
Eric Lamison-White
@1blockologist
like can't we just leave this PR open for 2 weeks and then update the PR to say final and just merge that in
Nick Johnson
@Arachnid
No, you can't do that.
Eric Lamison-White
@1blockologist
okay
well, I had contacted the authors to make that last call request after reading literature on this EIP from the last year, people just thought it was abandoned. which prompted them to make the PR

A PR to update EIP-1679 based on the ACD call yesterday: ethereum/EIPs#2226

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for advice on how to move the EIP 1973 from draft to final stage eventually. I think one of the most important things to do for an application level EIP is to make it very useful & abstract / general.

My initial championing ideas include to contact independent developers + companies to form an alliance, host hackathons to develop on it and so on.

I would love some feedback from the community here on what else I can do or what would be a good approach. Thanks!

@timbeiko
Friendly ping about this PR: ethereum/EIPs#2226 It would be great to have the Istanbul Meta EIP reflect the last call’s updates: ethereum/EIPs#2226 cc: @axic

@timbeiko I’m looking at it now (and first listening to the recording)

Hi
EIP: reject progpow
Do not allow @OhGodAGirl to hijack Ethereum governance

no problem. This is a room for technical discussion of EIPs and the EIP process.

Is there a style guide for EIPs beyond just the sections specified in EIP-1? Specifically, for EIP-2159 I’ve been asked (as part of a very helpful review) to move inline hyperlinks to a separate references section which to my mind reduces readability. Neither of us could point to a definitive style guide but looking at other EIP’s both approaches seem to be used and apparently some editors have asked for inline links to be moved on other EIPs.
I’m not sure it overly matters either way but it seems unproductive to have to try and work out what is expected and spend time discussing it.
Nick Savers
@nicksavers
I tried to maintain consistency for a while, but inline links are useful too. I just think it's cleaner to keep references to external sources in a specific references heading. Similar to Wikipedia.
Adrian Sutton
@ajsutton
From the random sampling of final EIPs I did today most of them seem to use inline links. Not sure how scientific that sampling was though.
Alex Beregszaszi
@axic
Recently there was a move to use non-inline links. Most of the Final EIPs were accepted years ago and do not adhere to many basic rules of EIP-1 of today.
Adrian Sutton
@ajsutton
True but it would be good to document any rules that are being added somewhere. If the plan is really to avoid inline links it should be added as a requirement to EIP1 or a style guide. There’s enough hurdles for EIP authors to jump through without having to guess formatting rules too. Although I do appreciate the limited time available for these things.
Nick Savers
@nicksavers
There was an EIP template. EIP-X I believe
We should update this with an external links Reference paragraph
Adrian Sutton
@ajsutton
Amusingly, the current template actually uses inline links.
