Requesting Features

The first step towards making a request is to search the existing tickets. TracSearchBox(Search Tickets:,ticket)?

There's also chance that Adium already supports what you're looking for, so make sure you've explored the documentation along with Adium's preferences and menus. If you find through searching that somebody has already requested what you're looking for, feel free to add new information or ideas to their existing ticket.

If you cannot find an existing ticket (it may take several searches) for your request you should create a new one. Please only put one issue in each ticket; it is OK (and preferred) to file multiple tickets if you have multiple issues.

Composing a new request ticket

Creating request tickets is relatively straightforward. However, it's a good idea to consider a few things before making a request

  • How exactly will what you're requesting work?
  • Will your request, if fulfilled, have any detrimental effects on Adium?
  • Are you requesting something needed by a large number of Adium users?

Unfortunately we don't have time to fulfill every request, so please don't take it personally if your request is declined or goes unanswered. We try to prioritize requests such that those which influence a large number of users take top priority. The amount of time and work required to implement a request is also factored into its priority.

Creating the ticket

Once you have your request fleshed out, create a ticket for it. You must login with the username and password adium. Please put your email address or, at the least, your name in the cc field of the ticket.

If you do list your email address, the Trac system will automatically notify you when the ticket is updated. Otherwise, your name lets us know who filed the ticket and what to call you when replying :)
