Priorities

Use this page to archive priority-related comments about specific Bugzilla entries. General comments on the future direction of Velocity should be posted on the RoadMap. This page does not replace JIRA, it merely serves as a guide for determining priority of JIRA entries. If you have a enhancement idea or bug fix, please post in JIRA first. When editing the items below, please add inistials by your comments. Then put your initials at the bottom of the page.

Important note: To speed up the process of getting your enhancement included, read GettingYourPatchCommitted. Basically, make sure the enhancement is consistent with the Velocity code base, follows Velocity Coding Standards, and includes both a patch and unit tests. Issues without a patch or unit test will be considered but may not be committed in as timely a manner.

I like seeing a breaking test to identify the bug before fixes are made. That way you can make sure the patch fixes the bug, and it never comes up again. (SKY)

That'd be helpful, although the bug may be obvious without it. (WGH)

Enhancements - Basic

Please list basic, backwards-compatible changes. The question of "what is basic" is necessarily subjective, but usually involves a change to one or two classes and has a localized (and backwards-compatible) impact on functionality. The idea is that these enhancements can be quickly applied.

Enhancements - Complex

Please list more involved enhancements. Typically such enhancements will affect multiple classes, involve an API or VTL change, and may not be backwards compatible. Generally they should be discussed on the dev list and may be revised before being committed.
