GitHub Roadmap FAQ

GitHub Roadmap FAQs

On July 28, 2020, we announced the GitHub public roadmap. :tada:

Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions we’ve received since launching it.

  • Why is GitHub doing this?
  • Why is conversation locked on the roadmap?
  • Where can I ask questions or share feedback about the roadmap?

Why is GitHub doing this?

The purpose of the roadmap is to give everyone more transparency into what we’re planning and to help everyone understand GitHub’s product vision.

Why is conversation locked on the roadmap?

The roadmap repository is for communicating GitHub’s roadmap. Existing issues are currently read-only, and we are locking conversations, as we get started. Interaction limits are also in place to ensure issues originate from GitHub. We’re planning to iterate on the format of the roadmap itself, and we see potential to engage more in discussions about the future of GitHub products and features.

Where can I ask questions or share feedback about the roadmap?

If you have questions or feedback, share them publicly by creating a new topic GitHub Community Forum within the appropriate category or privately via the Share feedback page.

We look forward to keeping you informed and to hearing your feedback about what’s on the roadmap! :heart:
