Issues for GitHub
This is not the actual repository for the GitHub website.
I'm not affiliated with GitHub in any way, except that I use it all day long, and almost all my code is hosted there.
Issues and feature requests posted to GitHub are not stored in any publicly available location, so I find that I quickly lose track of the things that I've sent them.
If you are a GitHubber, and you would like to respond and close issues on this repository, please let me (or one of the other collaborators) know, and we'll add you as a collaborator. Or maybe use some secret GitHub internal APIs to get access, if you have such things. If you want to know what people are asking for, or ask for them to provide details about use cases etc, then head over to the issues list.
Post an issue if you have an issue or feature request for GitHub. But you should also contact GitHub, since this repo is strictly for our own (unofficial) tracking purposes. If they reply, (and they usually do, quickly) and if it is not a confidential matter like a security disclosure, add their reply to the issue so that other users can know what their official response was.
Send GitHub the issue URL at the end of the message so that they can more easily find updates and further comments here.
Issues will only be closed once GitHub implements / fixes them, or explicitly says WONTFIX, which almost never happens nowadays. Issues may take a long time (forever) to be fixed, so make sure that you are ready to keep them around on your /issues list for a long time.
Statement of Intent
This repository is created in a spirit of positive intent and community good will. I have more love in my heart for GitHub than anyone probably ought to for any website. They've changed the face of open source, and enabled amazing things to happen. I've personally benefited quite a bit from those amazing things, and my life is much better as a direct result.
I'm very thankful to GitHub, and the great work they do. When I shake my fists in frustration, it's only because they are so good that I spend countless hours being productive on their website, and even minor problems seem to jump out.
Trolling, disparaging remarks about GitHub, or even just unproductive kvetching, will not be tolerated. Those comments will be deleted and the users blocked.
We're here to help each other, and the company that does so much for us.
