About this page

The intention of this page is to organize a vote, similar to wiki:R1/Alpha1Proposals. This vote is about requirements for R1 (Final). Voting 'must-have' for something means that you want R1 (Final) to be delayed until that and all other voted-for items are addressed.

Once the feature set is voted upon, a preliminary milestone for entering the beta cycles will be created. That preliminary milestone will include only the necessary features. Non-feature issues (such as bugs) will be reviewed as the beta milestone nears completion.

Definitions

must-have
This item will block the release of R1 (Final). Depending on what it is, it may also block entering the beta stage.
only-if-ready
This item will not block the release of R1 (Final) or any earlier releases. These items may be evaluated for inclusion in a particular release.
bundled application
This includes applications within the project's repository and the graphical applications included as OptionalPackages. Command line applications are not included in this definition.
