DEP - Debian Enhancement Proposals
Debian Enhancement Proposals (or DEPs, for short) offer a device to organize discussions about various kinds of enhancements in the Debian project, reflect their current status and, in particular, archive their outcomes.
DEP workflow: state diagram
In essence, each enhancement proposals is assigned to one or more drivers which follow the proposals advancing through various states, until it is finally accepted (or rejected). Discussions about ongoing DEPs happen in the usual Debian way (i.e., the most appropriate mailing list, IRC channel, etc.).
More rationale and the full details about DEPs can be found in DEP 0: Introducing Debian Enhancement Proposals.
