Gitlab hosts a list of „Epics“ in the Kicad Sources. As far as I can see, this is a loose collection of issues each one showing diffrent states but similar topics. Some of the Epics itself have „closed“ state, while others contain a mixed collection of closed and none closed issues states.
What is the purpose of Epics and what happens with them ? They are not intended to submit any patch or further spec-doc ?
Some of the issues show status „awaiting-spec-doc“. Assume this state label is assigned by lead devs who did not understand the issue because of foggy description ? Where is the home of „spec-docs“, what format do they have and who is allowed to submit them?
Some of the issues were active for a long time but not solved by merge request nor have the awaiting-spec-doc issued. Is it possible to re-open them to add a spec-doc or patch ?
