The month of 'What the Heck?!'
Welcome to the month of “What the heck?!”
Home Assistant is now almost around for 7 years! During that time, it has grown
into a big project, beloved by many of you. However, as the project grew, some
things might not have turned out the way it should be, are missing or maybe even
started annoying you. That is what this month is about.
We realize reporting bugs on our GitHub might be a steep hill.
You’ll need a GitHub account, report an issue following the issue templates
using Markdown and the report itself needs to be written in a way a developer
can work with it. Furthermore, we use our issue tracker for tracking actual
issues and bugs; not small feature requests or annoyances.
While this is a common and reasonable process to collect, track and process
bugs, our issue tracking process might not be the ideal way to learn about
annoyances or small tweaks and improvements that can make us all enjoy
Home Assistant even more.
In May, of this year, the Ruby on Rails project had a similar month ,
which we have enjoyed watching. Now, we are going to do something similar.
Today, we have opened up a Community Forum category as a safe, lower
barrier place to tell about your Home Assistant “What the heck?!” moments,
and more importantly, discuss and vote on topics your fellow users have
