Explanation of the process

New feature proposals will by nature be for the first Foswiki release. When you add a proposal you must create a new topic describing your proposal. You can use the form below. For the community to accept a proposal you must propose something that you are prepared to implement yourself or by an already committed developer. The 14-day clock does not start until

  • There is a committed developer
  • The date of commitment field has a date (so the application below can show it)

You are welcome to propose enhancements without a committed developer but then the community is only able to discuss the feature, not to accept it. But you may be lucky that a developer picks up the idea and decides to commit himself to implementing it.

Before submitting a new proposal:

  • Please scan over the existing feature requests to see if it has been requested already.
  • You might want to make yourself familiar with our Acceptance/Rejection Process of new features.
  • If you are including code to implement features, thanks for contributing to Foswiki's development! Please see the PatchGuidelines to make your patch easier to apply.
