How To Organize GitHub Issues


Issues should be categorized and prioritized by The Community.

Issues filed as Bugs should be sorted and categorized first.

All open Issues without a milestone should be sorted and categorized.

Open Wish List Issues should be periodically reviewed, and recategorized when resources (such as funding or new technology) become available.

Discuss open Needs Discussion Issues. Goal: Change them all to “Next Task.”

Prioritize open Next Task Issues.

Review open Active Development Issues. Stalled Issues may need recategorized; ensure that completed Issues have been closed.


Developers encounter Issues in the following order, and will not encounter any Issue which is not found by one of these links.
