Harbor Roadmap

About this document

This document provides a link to the Harbor Project board that serves as the up-to-date description of items that are in the Harbor release pipeline. The board has separate swim lanes for each release. Most items are gathered from the community or include a feedback loop with the community. This should serve as a reference point for Harbor users and contributors to understand where the project is heading, and help determine if a contribution could be conflicting with a longer term plan.

How to help?

Discussion on the roadmap can take place in threads under Issues or in community meetings. Please open and comment on an issue if you want to provide suggestions and feedback to an item in the roadmap. Please review the roadmap to avoid potential duplicated effort.

How to add an item to the roadmap?

Please open an issue to track any initiative on the roadmap of Harbor (Usually driven by new feature requests). We will work with and rely on our community to focus our efforts to improve Harbor.

Current Roadmap

The following table includes the current roadmap for Harbor. If you have any questions or would like to contribute to Harbor, please attend a community meeting to discuss with our team. If you don't know where to start, we are always looking for contributors that will help us reduce technical, automation, and documentation debt. Please take the timelines & dates as proposals and goals. Priorities and requirements change based on community feedback, roadblocks encountered, community contributions, etc. If you depend on a specific item, we encourage you to attend community meetings to get updated status information, or help us deliver that feature by contributing to Harbor.
