    Those are proposals which involve changes to the consensus rules and are accompanied by full blown specifications and implementations, so there will naturally be a relatively small number of them.

    What you are probably more asking about are proposals for myriad other topics such as budgetary concerns and promotion. Those types of proposals will be done via the upcoming Politeia system for which there was just an AMA.

    Is politeia an opensource project? Can I see the alpha version, and participate as a beta tester?
    Please dont forget me whenever Politiea arrives.

    Yes, it's open source. If you follow that AMA link, it has a lot of answers to probably at last the vast majority of your questions.

    For example, you can find a link to https://test-proposals.decred.org/ there.

    So how can we help for this to pass the testing phase and become production?

    Thanks for taking time to update the wiki page! This link may be helpful for the Governance column: https://docs.decred.org/getting-started/user-guides/agenda-voting/ -- it is a bit too technical but it explains the consensus voting process and contains a list of past votes results at the end. Better visibility of past results is in the works within our dcrdata project, which is Decred's own custom blockchain explorer written in Go from scratch.

    More hands for testing Politeia are very appreciated. Perhaps the best way to join the effort is visiting #politeia channel on our Slack. In addition you can have a look at open issues in politeiagui repository.

    Regarding the "real governed coin", despite the funding aspect of governance is not fully decentralized yet, I would argue Decred already has more working decentralized governance than any other project out there. Coin holders already have the ability to govern (control) the blocks since Feb 2016, and have a process for coordinated network upgrades since April 2017 that eliminates all the controversy around contentious hardforks.
