Subject Prioritising enhancement requests
Date Sun, 01 May 2011 10:15:46 GMT

As I type this there are around 160 open bugs for Tomcat 5, 6 & 7 in
Bugzilla. A handful of these are bugs and even of that handful most have
been fixed in Tomcat 7 and just open waiting approval to back-port to
Tomcat 5 and/or 6.

The majority of the bugs (around 140) are enhancement requests [1].
These enhancement requests are prioritised based on include:
- the complexity of the code change
- how useful the change is
- the balance of code complexity against feature usefulness
- how interested a committer is in the change

It think it would be useful if "user demand" was also available.
Bugzilla has a voting feature that can be used for this. Currently, only
a small number of enhancements have votes and a very small number have
more than one.

If there is an enahancement you would like to see implemented, please
vote for it. Anyone can create a bugzilla account. For each Tomcat
version each account has 10 votes and can assign a maximum of one vote
per issue.
