A NFR is a short document explaining how a new feature request must be submitted, how it can be implemented, and how it can help core developers and others to understand and implement it.
A NFR contains: * Suggested syntax * Suggested class names and methods * A description detailing the usage * How it can benefit the framework and the community * If the feature is already implemented in other frameworks, a short explanation of how that was implemented and its advantages
In the following cases a new feature request will be rejected if: * The feature makes the framework slow * The feature does not provide any additional value to the framework * The NFR is not clear, bad documentation, unclear explanation, etc. * The NFR does not follow the current guidelines/philosophy of the framework * The NFR affects/breaks applications developed in current/older versions of the framework * The original poster does not provide feedback/input when requested * It’s technically impossible to implement * It can only be used in the development/testing stages * Submitted/proposed classes/components don’t follow the Single Responsibility Principle * Uses static methods - (not allowed)
To send a NFR you do not need to provide Zephir or C code or develop the feature. New Feature requests explain the goal of the intended implementation and start a discussion on how best to implement it.
All NFRs should be posted as a new issue on GitHub. Please make sure to use the prefix [NFR] in the title of your issue.
