-Sponsor: Vipin Bharathan [[vipinsun@gmail.com]] 2016-03-10 <your name(s) ​and contact details here>+A "​Project"​ at Hyperledger is a collection of specific Maintainers,​ users and other developers, code, releases, issues, and other activity oriented around a common software-implemented mission.
  
-A HIP is any initiative that furthers Hyperledger,​ including new features, anything that requires resources and commitment from the community. +This project proposal template ushers originators,​ designers, implementers,​ testers of a project through community and TSC approval. The proposal should evolve organically as the HIP moves through the stages of conception, design, approval, implementation and deployment. The project and hence the proposal may also need several iterations. In its terminal forms it can also serve as a short manual to the features of the project for users. ​
