Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

Could a feature be added where when you convert a note into an issue, it uses the issue template?

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

Hey,

 

Would you kind folks at GitHub be so inclined as to implement a feature to notify users when a commit is made to master? Currently I see two extremes; 1) get notified of everything 2) get notified of releases. A couple of the repos I follow don't do releases (a lot of the 'awesome-<insert-thing>' repos) but I'd like to know when a cool entry is added to the repo.

 

Best Intentions,

Daniel Okey-Okoro.

Feature Request: Tag Reference files in PR

Often when I make a PR, the changes I made only make sense in light of one or more other unchanged files.

 

I would like the ability to tag other unchanged files as "of interest" in my PR so they show up with an empty diff in the PR, to save reviewers the hassle of scrounging around on their own to get the whole picture.

P.S. It won't let me tag this feature request as "feature request", so I've had to tag it as "featur3 request".

Flag repos as poop

Many times I come across bad code in repos. We need a way to flag the repo as 💩 with a button at the top of the page, just like stars, except negative.

 

This will help the community identify terrible code.

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

I'm trying to use Github projects to manage a new project, but I'm finding that it's missing some key features:

  • Need to pin a note or issue to the top of a column.
  • Need to add a description to a column that appears below the title and above the cards.
  • Need to set up project and/or column automation to act on issues with certain labels. It would be great to have a project focused on a particular label or set of labels.
  • Need to have project and/or column automation itself apply labels to issues. e.g. when an issue is moved from "To Do" to "Doing", the "in-progress" label is applied to the issue.

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

I'm not a massive user of Github but whenever I do come to look around and possibly download a project or part of it I'm wondering why you don't list the SIZE of the repo or the current folder when showing the Clone or Download zip button on the web gui. 

 

Maybe its somewhere else in the interface ??   But when I go to clone or download I would really like to know if I'm looking at a 30KB or 200MB  download.

 

Thanks

Would love if you could render Swift Color literals as colors. Thanks!

Hi @AndreaGriffiths11 , I think that pull request for projects wiki is a really good and interesting feature

https://help.github.com/en/articles/about-code-owners is a good feature for a large team.

But I think it can be better by adding owners on the changed files list so Owners knows which files they should review

Re: Where do I post feature requests for Github ?

On the Insights > Forks page could you add some sort of indicator for forks whether the main branch is ahead/behind/equal with the original repos main branch?

Of course you can click through each one and see what the heading says, but that's far from conventient:

It would be really handy to be able to find Forks that are ahead to ask people to contribute back, etc.

 

(Note: Default might be a better term than main, I'm not sure exactly what it's refered to in github parlance.)
