If Mutual Distributed Ledger (MDL, aka blockchain) Systems are to establish credibility and gain widespread acceptance, they need to incorporate the practice of good governance.  Amidst the rush to find new applications for this versatile technology, this report provides an overview of the challenge of governing MDL networks.  Its aim is to identify the critical components of systems of effective governance and model the constitutions and service level agreements for their implementation, in order to provide a roadmap for developers and users alike.
