Feature and Issue tracking

Post by johu »

Hey ho everyone.
We discussed today about the lack of organization of firmware development, at least when it comes to inverter firmware. Probably other projects, too.

Now, the situation is, that I wake up every morning knowing there are a number of outstanding issues and improvements. But when I sit down in front of my computer, I can't actually remember what they were and where to find them. So I watch youtube instead. Not good.

We discussed somehow to extend the forum to organize tracking but it's probably easier to use a bug tracking system that is actually meant for the task: github issues. E.g. for inverter that is this: https://github.com/jsphuebner/stm32-sine/issues

Now, I think the forum is still a great place to assess whether a given issue is a user or system error. But if it turns out to be the latter, we need to keep track of it. Otherwise chances are it won't be fixed.

So that would be the "process": discuss on forum -> open an issue if appropriate

That's where the solution begins. Hopefully. Thanks :)

Fully agree. Started the process with this: https://github.com/jsphuebner/esp32-web ... e/issues/1
I think it would help if everybody thinks about the topics which were discussed in the past, and if something seems to be open, just discuss and create an issue for each.

I've created an issue for another frequently requested feature - dead-zone free regen throttle mapping: https://github.com/jsphuebner/stm32-sine/issues/38

Please could we create some tags to properly label "feature requests" and "bugs"?

Cool, I see this is catching on. Thanks very much :)
Also the "new firmware" threads tend to have issue-ish stuff in them.

Most of us have also discovered this technique to avoiding progress. It has an almost perfect success rate.

"enhancement" and "bug" already existed as label and I have added "safety" for safety critical enhancements.

johu, could you enable the "Thanks" feature Announcements? It's present in other General|General threads (non-Announcement) threads, but not this one.

Seems to be a limitation of the plugin, couldn't find any option to enable it here

Hi! Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. I'm an EE by trade who's been working in the microelectronics industry for the past 12 years and is just now trying to cut my teeth in contributing back to open source projects. I've got extensive experience in C programming for embedded devices, and familiarity with power electronics systems. I own two EVs, but the most hands-on experience I have with electric vehicles specifically is building the battery pack for my eBike conversion. I dream of one day converting a yellow Jeep Wrangler for my wife.

I have free-time, a reasonable amount of cash for buying components, and I'd love to help out. Where can I be the most useful?
