Will the full prose of each Ricardian contract be stored on-chain, or just a reference to its hash? Also, how does a distributed application developer publish a Ricardian contract that is mapped to a smart contract to signal the intention of said smart contract?
The first question, my understanding is it will store a reference to its hash, not the full prose. and the second question, there are many details need to be discussed. maybe there will publish some ducs to explain it.
and some references, you can read some articles to understand more context:
