As part of the process to update to v0.13.0, there is a final manual spork activation that will reset the votes in the governance system (spork 15, activation of deterministic masternode lists). This means that all proposals that are live at that time will see their votes go to zero (yes, no and abstain).
This is a one-time event and, in order to minimize the impact, the team will only do this manual activation at the beginning of a voting cycle. The conditions are still not met to be able to do it in the cycle that ends on January 31st, 2019. We believe that during the month of February we’ll see enough progress in the update process to be able to perform this step at the start of the cycle that commences on March 2nd, 2019.
Please take this into consideration if you are planning to do a proposal in the next few cycles, especially if it is a multi-month one.
We will communicate extensively around this event, and we do not expect a significant impact for any proposal owner. We went through a full reset of the governance system in early 2017 when we launched v0.12.1 and Sentinel. Back then, the process was more complicated and required proposal owners to re-submit, but MNOs were quick to vote again and restore proposals to where they were before the reset. Fortunately, proposal owners will not be required to re-submit this time, so the process should be even simpler.
