Enhancement tracking repo for Kubernetes releases. Owned by SIG Architecture.
This repo contains issues and KEPs. These issues are umbrellas for new enhancements to be added to Kubernetes. An enhancement usually takes multiple releases to complete. And an enhancement can be tracked as backlog items before work begins. An enhancement may be filed once there is consensus in at least one Kubernetes SIG.
We are trying to figure out the exact shape of an enhancement. Until then, here are a few rough heuristics.
An enhancement is anything that:

Once users adopt an enhancement, they expect to use it for an extended period of time. Therefore, we hold new enhancements to a high standard of conceptual integrity and require consistency with other parts of the system, thorough testing, and complete documentation. As the project grows, no single person can track whether all those requirements are met.
The development of an enhancement often spans three stages: Alpha, Beta, and Stable. Enhancement Tracking Issues provide a checklist that allows for different approvers for different aspects, and ensures that nothing is forgotten across the development lifetime of an enhancement.
