★ Unofficial bug track

GitHub issues are really confusing for bigger projects with more than 100 bugs. Sourceforge offers free Trac instances.

Dumb questions:

Is this repository for ST3 issues only ?
If not, how to differentiate ST2 issues from ST3 issues ?
Not sure it's important because it looks like ST2 development is stopped, so why track bugs that will never be resolved...

Is using a free account to manage issues for a commercial product authorized by the TOS of Github (no idea) ?

Great idea. We'll have to see if github is the right tool for this. It becomes cluttered, especially with many issues.

One category I'd like to see is "consistency". Stuff that is not really a bug in its own right, but you'd expect it to work in a similar way as other things. Best example for me is that "Go to anything" stays open when you alt+tab away from ST, but the command palette and (I guess) all other panels don't. Which can be quite annyoing.

We should also keep feature requests out of the repo, since there are many many things people could want, and that would clutter the repo and make it very difficult to navigate.

@FichteFoll , thanks for the ideas. I've updated the labels, adding prefixes, to allow sorting. To me looks very clean now.
https://github.com/SublimeText/Issues/issues

This bug tracking is only for Sublime Text 3, or these bugs of ST2, but still present in ST3.

These people asking for jon, forget jon, if we work here, this will eventually be good for the community. And I'm sure, jon will keep an eye, maybe not as an active "contributor", but he will be able to look freely there and probably find better ways to look at reported problems, with proper descriptions and ways to reproduce these. Take jon as a robot which understand code :-P
When people report bugs in forums, we will be able to link to github, they may add more information and the overall quality of reported things, will improve. You may find ways to workaround these, and see how many people is complaining, etc.


The first step was to select a bug tracking platform. DONE
The second was some start labels. DONE

Now we need to add some bug guidelines. I suggest we draft in this document, which allows easy editing:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/15c5 ... sp=sharing
then we can import the guidelines to the readme.md file.

I somewhat leading this, and taking actions, but please, if you think something is wrong and you have intentions to improve looking at the big picture of all the community, please comment.

Exactly the readme.md on github: https://github.com/SublimeText/BugTracking
Or, we can also use github wiki :)

What happens with the readme? We are basically drafting the document here https://docs.google.com/document/d/15c5 ... kKUk/edit# because allow chat, and edit all at the same time, once something readable is done, we just paste the content to the readme.md..
I'm missing something? :)
