Umbraco uses the issue tracking feature of GitHub across all open-source projects as well as closed sourced products.
The issue tracker is a space for any Umbraco user to interact with the community and UmbracoHQ on any bugs, improvements or feature requests to any of our products. An issue typically covers either a feature request for one of our products or a bug report with details on where a product needs to be improved.
The following issue trackers cover our main products:
- Umbraco CMS issue tracker
- Umbraco Forms issue tracker
- Umbraco Deploy issue tracker
- Umbraco Cloud issue tracker
Request for Comments
Part of our open-source initiative is open interaction with our community when planning new changes to the architecture of the open-source CMS. To do that we use a process called Request for Comments (RFC).
The Umbraco RFC process is intended to provide a consistent way for Umbraco HQ to facilitate the transparency of decisions made for features and changes in Umbraco products.
An Umbraco RFC is a proposal for a significant change or a new feature.
The RFC process will:
- Facilitate the transparency of decision-making by Umbraco HQ to Umbraco end-users.
- Enable individual contributors to help make decisions.
- Allow domain experts to have input in decisions.
- Manage the risk of decisions made.
- Have a snapshot of the context for the future.
For more information check out the RFC documentation on GitHub.
You can also follow current and previous RFCs from GitHub here.
