Anaconda Features

There are a lot of things being worked on within anaconda at any given time. We're trying to do a better job of keeping track of what's being worked on, requested, or planned to be worked on. Some of these aren't currently being worked or driven by anyone. If you're interested in one of these features, we encourage you to work up a basic design (or the start of some code) and send it to for review and comment. If you want to work on something not listed here, the same is true
