Last month, a group of developers sent an open letter to GitHub complaining about the service's lack of responsiveness and requesting several improvements to features. GitHub has finally responded with a blog post, which says, "We hear you and we’re sorry. We’ve been slow to respond to your letter and slow to respond to your frustrations."
The code hosting service, which is used by many enterprises and open source projects, said that it is working on the requested improvements, and added, "But we’re not going to stop there. We’ll continue to focus on Issues moving forward by adding new features, responding to feedback, and iterating on the core experience. We’ve also got a few surprises in store."
