|1. Motion of no-confidence||A motion to create a state of no-confidence in the current constitutional committee|
|2. New constitutional committee and/or threshold and/or term limits||Modifications to the members of the constitutional committee, signature threshold, or term limits|
|3. Updates to the constitution||Modifications to the off-chain constitution, recorded as an on-chain hash of the text document|
|4. Hard fork initiation||A non-backward compatible upgrade of the network, which requires a prior software upgrade|
|5. Protocol parameter changes||Any change to one or more updatable protocol parameters, excluding changes to major protocol versions ('hard forks')|
|6. Treasury withdrawals||Treasury withdrawals are sub-categorized into small, medium, or large and are determined by the amount of lovelace to be withdrawn.|
|7. Info||An action that doesn't have any on-chain impact except for being recorded on-chain.|
Each type of governance action represents a distinct feature within cardano-node and cardano-cli. As such, they will be rolled out in phases, coinciding with the integration of each feature.
