Ethereum update: Changes are being made to the EIP process which remove the need for gauging community opinion and bypass a core dev vote
Changes are being made to the EIP process which remove the need for community consensus, and allow EIPs to become Accepted based only on being “technically feasible”. It also removes the ability of core devs to vote on EIPs before they get accepted.
Interesting that this happens right after Parity failed again to get their fund recovery EIP accepted. Funny how they thought it could be accepted just for not having “technical objections”… anyone seeing a parallel?
Here is the pull request, which already got approval (not yet merged) by one editor: https://github.com/ethereum/EIPs/pull/1224/files

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference.
