We’ve already received a good amount of feedback after my WCEU session on meta trac, the summary post of our last chat, and in blog posts throughout the community.
But we’re looking for more! 🙂 Please feel free to leave general feedback as comments on this post, and specific bug reports as new tickets on meta Trac (but make sure it doesn’t exist yet). The meta team will go through all feedback, derive a prioritized list of suggestions from it, and work it into the iteration schedule.
Thank you for your participation!
