Want to propose a new feautre?

The first step, before spending a lot of time on design or code, publish a proposal to make/Community P2 that describes your idea.

If you can’t create a new post, then go to the #community-team channel in Slack and ask for a deputy to give you the Author role.
Set a deadline in the post for the discussion, usually one month after posting the proposal is a good deadline.

Additionally, if your proposal isn’t fully fleshed out and still in development, consider jotting down your ideas on GitHub Issues or in Slack to seek preliminary feedback. You might even build a simple Proof of Concept (POC) and submit a Draft PR or a Ready for Review PR for further feedback. Once your idea starts taking shape, you can present your complete proposal on the make/Community P2.

For guidance on what to do after submitting your idea, please read through the Process for Feature Design and Implementation.
