This is a discussion related to the Copter development priority debate that popped on the Copter-3.3 beta testing thread. A quick categorization of the things we work on in each release include:
- bug fixes (i.e. fixes to existing features that have a defect)
- safety features (i.e. new features that improve reliability)
- other new features (i.e. non safety features like landing gear)
The basic question might be, "are we spending too much time on new features, time that should instead be spent on bug fixes or safety features?". Let the debate continue!
