Proposal Enh's from Bugzilla

From Audacity Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Proposal pages help us get from feature requests into actual plans. This is an umbrella proposal gathering together proposals that were Enh: proposals on Bugzilla. Mainly it's to get them out of Bugzilla, which is unsuited for discussions.
Proposal pages are used on an ongoing basis by the Audacity development team and are open to edits from visitors to the wiki. They are a good way to get community feedback on a proposal.

  • Note: Proposals for Google Summer of Code projects are significantly different in structure, are submitted via Google's web app and may or may not have a corresponding proposal page.


Bugs listed here as closed are closed as bugzilla entries, but may live on as proposals or as feature requests.

Larger Proposals with backing

Smaller Proposals with backing

  • ToDo.png Export Multiple Numbering bug 112
    • Done.png 2 digit numbering on export.
  • ToDo.png Hyperlinks in Audacity locally capturable bug 99
    • Essential idea is that just as we have a local manual we can have local extracts from the wiki. Needs a bit of thought, as one of the big reasons for using wiki is for information that is in flux.
  • ToDo.png Auto fit to width in some circumstances bug 184
  • ToDo.png Extend auto track numbering to also operate on add->new-Track. bug 201
    • At the moment this is only done for newly recorded tracks.
  • ToDo.png Record at cursor bug 1613
  • ToDo.png Add Project title on History Window bug 446
  • Done.png Put key-binding first in preferences keybinding listing bug 1165

Think about

  • There was an Enh to add shortcuts for scrubbing/seeking. Perhaps this could mutate into a proposal for more comprehensive full shortcuts.
  • Bug 1258 requested shortening of the Track menu by removing inapplicable items. That menu is now shorter. One idea is to further shorten it by having distinct Track menus for Stereo and Mono Tracks.

Proposals that lack sufficient backing to progress

These proposals may be too much work relative to the gain, or be too nebulous to progress.

  • Browser for Projects that reports sizes, allows rename, deletion. bug 136
    • Note that this becomes pointless if we have Proposal Unitary Project since a normal file browser will then do just fine.
  • Opus import/export support bug 593
    • This bugzilla entry was really a vote for that feature.
