Werner Keil: It’s not extremely urgent either, but have some of you noticed Github Discussions: https://github.com/unitsofmeasurement/indriya/discussions is an example where I activated it for the RI of JSR 385. I think for some items it could fit better than the issue although the technical nature is very similar but there are types like question, idea or (Agile) “Show and Tell” that sound very appealing.
