GitHub Project Boards

Apache Cordova uses GitHub Project Boards to manage and track both issues and pull requests.

Issue Management


Pull Requests Management

For Pull Requests we track their “review and merge progress” on project boards:



  • Pull Requests start in the “New PR / Untriaged” column (added manually by using the “Add Card” functionality)
  • They can then be sorted by a maintainer into columns according to their “review” readiness (“Blocked: Work in Progress”, “Blocked: Conflict”, “Blocked: Tests failing” or “Ready for Review”).
  • On review, merge, close etc. they are moved to other columns by automation (“Pending Approval”, “Approved, waiting for Merge”, “Merged, waiting for Release”, “Closed/Abandoned”).
  • After release they are manually moved to the “Released” column.


GitHub Labels for platform (platform: ios, platform: android) and type (bug, feature, enhancement) are used to categorize pull requests.


“Note cards” (in contrast to issue or pull request cards) are used to highlight quirks of a board (e.g. that there are multipple plugin PR boards because of the 5 associated repositories limit by GitHub) and the “automation type” for reach column (human, automation, both).
