The issue templates are great, but as more features are introduced in github like projects and the template builder then this feature is now kind of half baked.
All templates have a yaml frontmatter in the following format:
--- name: Tracking issue about: Use this template for tracking new features. title: "[DATE]: [FEATURE NAME]" labels: tracking issue, needs triage assignees: octocat ---
Some of these yaml properties like “labels”, “title” and “assignees” corrensponds with supported query parameters for issue automation. You can see this in action when inspecting the the issue template chooser as it will generate a link that looks like this:
<a href="/demo-org/demo-repo/issues/new?assignees=&labels=tracking%2C+triage&template=demo.md&title=" class="btn btn-primary"> Get started </a>
Please add support for the remaining query parameters in issue templates, especially “projects”
