Issue tracker

We track outstanding work in our github tracker. To keep our issue tracker manageable, we prefer you discuss suggestions or issues in one of our forums, typically our email list, before adding an issue to the tracker.

Style Guide

We use the Google Style Guide and American spelling, as per the Merriam-Webster Online dictionary. If you’re used to working with such reference books, that’s great; if not, please contribute anyway, a tech writer will likely update your contribution later.
