See [[request for comments]] for a list of long-standing issues and challenges affecting FlightGear's evolution and overall development progress (admittedly a little outdated meanwhile).
'''Help needed:'''
Creating an integrated [[Canvas]] based GUI launcher/package manager {{Issue|1295}}:
{{cquote|For aircraft, the system supports aircraft dirs, there is the package manager code which works but is currently unused, which can download and extract zipped aircraft. This needs a GUI but thanks to the new reset architecture we can finally build this GUI inside FG - i.e an ‘aircraft chooser’ UI - however I am find building such a UI rather outside my comfort zone. If anyone would like to help in this area, let me know.<ref>{{cite web |url=

The [[YASim]] FDM is looking for a new maintainer:
{{cquote|There are some pending merge requests[] to add some YASim features, but we have an issue that since none of the current C++ developers own, or are experts in YASim, we're reluctant to be the person who merges such changes, and potentially introduces subtle regressions.
Obviously this is chicken-and-egg, since no one can become expert enough in the code to become a maintainer :)
So, I'm more than happy to apply patches *providing* I can be convinced they are sane+reasonable from a pure code perspective (happy to help with that, too,
if people are new to C++), and providing we have some assurance that a representative sample of YASim aircraft are unchanged or improved by the patch.
Suggestions for that means in practice, are most welcome!
Otherwise I worry, given the nature of the solver, we'll keep optimising the solver for some aircraft, and making other existing aircraft worse - until someone tests them, and announced that they're no longer working.<ref>{{cite web |url=

{{cquote|I am still broadly happy to answer questions if posed (as long as I remember enough to come up with a meaningful answer). Just cc: me if you do, because my latencies here are measured in weeks.Bugs can always be fixed. What YASim needs is a maintainer, not really expertise per se. The latter comes from the former.<ref>{{cite web |url=
