Steps to starting a project (paraphrased from draft Project Handbook:

  1. Submitter sends request via: new project request form
  2. Request generates an email to the GPC containing project submission
  3. All requests are held for a five day waiting period ("speedbump") for committee and community review/feedback. The proposal will be sent to the Global Projects Committee Mailing List: [email protected]
  4. At the conclusion of the "speedbump" period, the project is created.
