Add feature request issue template #17382
Description of the Change
Adds a new feature request issue template and uses the current issue template as the bug report issue template to take advantage of the new issue template chooser:
Could leave things as is but we did find the current issue template is more bug report focused which caused some folks to delete it and leave a 1 or 2 sentence feature request. Also, a separate feature request specific template should hopefully encourage more detailed feature requests.
Why Should This Be In Core?
Needs to be so it shows up in the issue template chooser.
As mentioned above, a more feature request focused issue template will hopefully encourage people to describe why they want something in addition to encouraging them to look at Atom's customizability in case the feature can be satisfied without changes to Atom.
It's possible that the extra friction for feature requests might discourage someone from making a feature request, but it's helpful for us to have more information about the what/why/alternatives considered.
