Bugs, Feature Requests, and Tasks (oh my)
If you find an error with the way the generator works, that is a bug. If you want to add a new feature to the generator or change the way something works, that is a feature request.
If you think you've found a bug, or have a feature request for G\Generator the first step is to search to see if someone else has already logged the item in the issue tracker.
If you do find a similar bug or feature request, and have additional information to add, please leave a comment. Don't comment just to say "me too".
If you don't find your bug or feature request, feel free to create a new issue, please label it appropriately. Feature requests marked as bugs are pretty likely to simply be marked as invalid and ignored.
