Parked Feature Proposals

Proposals that have been parked because they failed to fullfill the basic criteria in the release process mainly
  • Proposals must have a developer that commits to drive the feature to completion (there is not demand on how soon).

Proposals may also be parked after acceptance because the developer realise that he cannot find time to implement the feature. Someone else are then welcome to pick it up.
