Invalid tickets

  • The ticket system is not used to request or propose features - also called "enhancements"

The "new enhancement" ticket type is not used. Tickets that request features are closed regularly. Examples from 2013: request new packet and support new hardware.

Ask in the forum or on the mailing list. The patches sent to the mailing list are collected in Patchwork first.

  • Send patches to the mailing list

You can attach patches to the tickets but likely they won't be accepted. Please, send them to the mailing list and follow the guidelines: https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/SubmittingPatches
