Revision as of 18:52, 6 December 2007

The listed features are accumulated from the forum where they have been acknowledged by a member of the Geni Team (date stamp). All qualified roadmap listings have therefore at least one date stamped reference to a forum thread. Ideally there would be only one thread in the forum

It is our hope that Geni staff will assist maintaining and ensuring each feature request is correctly listed in any of the following phases

  1. Under Development - For features currently being worked on by development staff and to be released in near future (<3 months)
  2. Planned features - For features accepted and waiting to be allocated to development staff.
  3. Features being Investigated - Features currently being researched/reviewed by the Geni Team
  4. Postponed Features - Features considered low priority and placed on the backburner
  5. Rejected feature requests - Requests/suggestions that will not be considered
  6. New feature requests - Requests/suggestions that have not yet received any positive response from Geni Team Member

Each section has a general subsection "Additional features/fixes" for minor bugfixes
