About the Tracker

This tracker is maintained as a tool to assist the core Qubes developers. Its purpose is to allow the developers to have an easily-accessible, high-level, current overview of features that are being developed by community members (as opposed to core developers). In most cases, these issues have the "far in the future" milestone on GitHub, which is not very informative. This tracker offers more fine-grained information about the status of each feature, which is useful when adjusting the Qubes roadmap for the next release. In order to best serve this purpose, only those features that meet the following criteria are tracked:
