[edit] Bugzilla

Please consider using Bugzilla to file your feature requests instead of this page!

The benefits of using Bugzilla instead of this page should be clear:

  • Bugzilla is meant to track bugs as well as feature requests
  • Discussions on one topic are easily possible and visible in the cooker mailinglist
  • It is possible to vote for feature requests
  • It is possible to use Bugzilla to determine which features should be implemented for which release and track the status of them
  • If you want to see a list of all open feature requests, simply ask Bugzilla

Still, this Wiki page is useful to keep an overview of ideas that have been raised for the next release.
