The Development web contains all the topics that are related to the development of Foswiki:
  • New Features requests
  • Coding Standards
  • Development Procedures
  • Developers Documentation
  • Release Tracking
  • Feature Brainstorming
  • Anything else the developers feel that should be here.

The following topics will be moved to their proper place by the WebsiteFacilitatorTaskTeam


I think it is important to keep all taxonomy discussion in one place instead of spreading them on the WebTaxonomy topics in different webs.
