Wishlist[edit]

This project in our issue tracker is where new unsponsored feature requests for Access to Memory (AtoM) can be added. This allows us to log feature requests, and begin discussion about requirements and design without adding confusion to the main AtoM project's issue tracker as to which features will be included in an upcoming release.

See the AtoM Wishlist project here:

Tip

Once you've followed the link above, you can click on the "Issues" link at the top of the page to browse all issue tickets in the AtoM Wishlist. You can sort the list of issues by clicking on a column header, and use the Filter drop-down menu to the right to customize the query.

How the Wishlist works

When features are sponsored by an institution, or developed and submitted via community pull request, they will be copied to the main AtoM project in our issue tracker (here), and marked verified in the Wishlist project. Developer discussion, quality assurance testing, and other related updates will be posted to the related development ticket in the main AtoM project.

The tested version tag can be used in the Wishlist's issue description to keep track of when the feature was requested (e.g. which version of AtoM was most recent when the feature request came in)

The target version will only be applied before a Wishlist ticket is verified (closed) and copied to the main AtoM project.
