wiki:FutureHaiku/Features

Version 33 (modified by mmadia, 9 years ago) ( diff )

Added Poll macro. Untested.


Note: A Poll macro will be installed in the near future, to make voting an easier process. In the meantime, feel free to edit the proposals. However, voting is not open yet.


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.
