    The specs are great and i agree that having one for the more complicated features is a great benefit.

    I have also seen specs with added pseudocode, but am beginning to think that often leads to a poor code quality.

    Note that Windows Terminal project uses issue numbers for specs, so there are not 5000 specs :)


    Another file worth looking at from time to time is the Roadmap.

    It's come a long way since the early days. To get an idea into the progress, scroll through the release notes and you'll get an idea! Speaking of which, the project is open source and available on GitHub. You can either raise an issue directly in the GitHub repository, or if you're more inclined to make a contribution, then you can submit a pull request, though make sure to read the Contributor's Guide first!
