From our Final Terms of the Lockdrop Article, published May 31 2019:

“If an address that calls ‘Signal’ is unable to sign a transaction with msg.value greater than 0 for the entirety of the 3, 6 or 12-month lock durations, that signal can be treated as a lock for the purposes of the allocation award.

These will be treated as a 3-month lock* without early contribution bonuses, and at the end of the contribution period (post-August 30th,) will be added to the genesis spec of Edgeware, case-by-case. In these cases, we will strive to achieve the two goals outlined in this article on the Lockdrop Norms.

*As of June 18,2019, based on community feedback and/or signaling proposals from current Lockdrop participants, the amount allocated to each General Lock participant may change.  These proposals will be published to https://commonwealth.im for engagement and discussion by EDG address holders.
