Hi All,

*tl;dr: we have switched to Github issue tracker
<https://github.com/ckan/ideas-and-roadmap> for managing the Feature Ideas
and Roadmap for CKAN (see also the pretty version of the Roadmap

As detailed previously<http://ckan.org/2013/06/24/ckan-roadmap-goes-public/>we
have a public we have a public process managing ideas and roadmap for
CKAN improvements.

This was being managed in Trello but is moving to Github issue

We have also updated the Roadmap page <http://ckan.org/roadmap> to give
more information about the Roadmap and how it works. I've inlined some of
this below - but see the page for full details.

Thoughts and comments - especially on the growing list of ideas in the
tracker - is very welcome!




This is the home page for the CKAN technical roadmap and its development

The Roadmap provides stakeholders in CKAN, including users, developers and
vendors, with the ability to shape and understand the future technical path
for CKAN. Specifically, the Roadmap provides for:


   Suggesting new ideas and features for CKAN

   Prioritizing these into a schedule for future work especially on "core"

We emphasize that ideas don't just have to be about improvements to the core
CKAN software <https://github.com/ckan/ckan> - for example, the idea of
creating a new phone app client for CKAN would be perfect thing to submit.

Lastly, we should emphasize that, of course, just because an item is in the
ideas tracker does not mean it will get worked on. If you want a certain
feature implemented then the best way to ensure that happens is to sponsor
its development - get in touch for more information<http://ckan.org/contact/>

Why move from trello to github issues?


   Ability for anyone to join in (for trello you need to be added to the

   Github issues is more natural place for developers and we can make an
   easier connection with actual issues

   Better notification ability
