WikiTree: Behind the scenes

+4 votes
Hello, I'm wondering how is the team behind the WikiTree project organized. OK there is this forum and also Wiki pages where the team can collect feedback, but that is rather for users and IMHO not really usable without some filter / preprocessing.

Is there some feature planning? (nice to have, must have,...)

Organized bug tracker? (because this forum is mess and everything becames lost very soon).

Some version tracking repository? (I assume it's necessary when working in team)

Can we take a peek at some of those?

Is there a way to help with development of WikiTree? I don't mean creating 3rd party things via REST API, but rather fixing bugs, etc.

Feature planning - Yes - stick around and you'll see questions and announcements from Chris and Eowyn.

Yes, there is bug tracking.  To get a bug added, use the tag "bug" on your G2G post when reporting.

Yes, I believe Jamie runs a page with tracking.

Stick around for a while and read and read and ask questions and you'll probably learn quite a bit and more!

We track bugs, suggestions, etc here:

SJ Baty: Thanks for answer, but it's little bit vague. I've already found team info earlier and I'm observing (at least Tech section of this forum) for quiet some time and unfortunately I'm seeing some bugs appearing again and again (like issues with image upload) so I'm getting an impression that there is something wrong.

Would be nice to hear some details from team members.
Eowyn: thanks, I will look at it.
See the link I posted above :)
Oh, jinx! Thanks!
