Abstract: The millisecond proto-magnetar model for the central engine of long-durationgamma-ray bursts is briefly reviewed. Limitations and uncertainties in themodel are highlighted. A short discussion of the maximum energy, maximumduration, radiative efficiency, jet formation mechanism, late-time energyinjection, and non-association with supernovae of millisecondmagnetar-powered GRBs is provided.
