# Slipmat Development Process
Slipmat is developed with a very open process. The developer documentation (opens new window) explains everything in great detail but for most users there's justa couple of important things to know and follow: how to report issues and the roadmap.
Slipmat is a community project. That means everyone in the Slipmat community can help and affect the development process.
# How To Report Issues
- Before submitting an issue, search the open issues list (opens new window)
- If your issue or feature request isn't alredy submitted, submit a new issue (opens new window)
The roadmap is a longer term plan of upcoming features and development. Things on this roadmap will change during the initial beta phase. See the details from attached GitLab ticket links.
