Matplotlib Enhancement ProposalsΒΆ

Matplotlib Enhancement Proposals (MEP), inspired by cpython's PEP's but less formal, are design documents for large or controversial changes to Matplotilb. These documents should provide a discussion of both why and how the changes should be made.

To create a new MEP open a pull request (PR) adding a file based on the template to this the MEP directory. For the initial PR only a rough description is required and it should be merged quickly. Further detailed discussion can happen in follow on PRs.
