I was wondering what new update you were pointing out until I clicked on the link. The template is preloaded. Nice! I certainly hope this is coming to everyone soon!

@aensley Yeah, it links out to this template for the issue body: https://github.com/owncloud/core/blob/master/issue_template.md

Also, above the title you can see a link to the contributing page https://github.com/owncloud/core/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

The link to the contributing file has been there as long as I've been using GH. The pre-loaded template is new to me though. Testing it out on my repo right now.

The issue template in that repo was originally created in Jan 2013.

Did this functionality exist the whole time?

Some plugins and that exist.

One thing I noticed is it uses issue_template.md for the source of it. I'd much rather have a setting page on the repo to set the markdown for it manually, I don't want a bunch of github specific files mucking up my repos.

The issue with that is you couldn’t make PR to fix issues in the issue template itself.

@joshmanders Yeah, I agree. However, this is a great addition (or potentially there the whole time without any documentation).

I'm not sure how it will impact things like Sphinx-Doc or Jekyll sites either having this random Markdown document in the root of the repo.

@bfontaine You have a valid point there.

@brianjking the repo shown in this issue has had the issue_template.md file since 2013. I assume it's part of a browser plugin or something that pre-fills in the issue with the contents for you if you have the plugin installed.

@svenluijten & @KellerFuchs I never said this was a plugin, I was stating the issues_template.md from the owncloud/core repo is probably an artifact from such a plugin used by a member of the team there and GitHub just so happened to set that file as the trigger.

Anyone know if it can be used with any casing of issue_template.md? I think we've normally used stuff like README.md and CONTRIBUTING.md, so I wonder if that extends to this.

If this turns out to be something that has been there the whole time without any documentation written about it...

ownCloud had that file since a very long time ago. We just discovered today when clicking on "New issue" that Github started using it. Could be luck that it was named that way already 😄

My guess is that "GitHub is listening," saw this in the wild via a third-party, and integrated it natively using the same naming convention.

The owncloud issue_template.md file has been there for 3 years: #1160 is the PR that added it and @LukasReschke doesn't mention any existing plugin there. Just a lucky fluke, I guess.

This is correct. As far I am aware there is no plugin support for this and we have just used to link to this from our contributing.md file. (which was actually nearly always ignored 🙈)

As @PVince81 in #125 (comment) stated we discovered this today randomly while filing an issue. (see also HN)
