One lightweight example is ,
with the process described at [1], basically:

-Create an issue to define the rough shape of a proposal
-If there's consensus, create a Markdown document with the proposal
-Refine the proposal with pull requests
-Set a state on each proposal: draft, implementing, done, canceled etc.

What I like about it is that it captures the history of each proposal
in a single place, with a minimal process.
