Yocto Project 3.1 Feature Planning

Process for Entering New Feature Requests

We have been using the same Bugzilla where we manage bugs to manage all features. Features in Bugzilla should have their severity set to 'enhancement'. If you have a feature request or even an idea about something for 3.1 or future releases, please feel free to file an 'enhancement' feature in Bugzilla:

  • Set the severity of bug to be 'enhancement'. Please put as much detail as possible in the 'description' field and give it a concise and meaningful 'summary'. You can always add/edit as you have more thoughts and information about the feature. Others can also use the feature entry to ask questions or provide feedback.
  • If you know which functional category the feature belongs to, please put the bug # in appropriate category such as usability, performance, kernel, core build system, etc.
  • Set the priority you would like this to be or indicate this in the description field. We may adjust the priority when we have a better view of the whole release later on.
  • Preview your Entry to make sure it looks ok and then save it


High = Must have for the target release
Medium+ = Very important, needs special attention compared with other medium features
Medium = Important
Low = Nice to have, no defined plan
