Triaging code-server issues is done with the following issue filter:
is:issue is:open no:project sort:created-asc -label:blocked -label:upstream -label:waiting-for-info -label:extension-request
This will show issues that:
blockedor tagged for work by
upstream(the VS Code core team). If an upstream issue is detrimental to the code-server experience we may fix it in our patch instead of waiting for the VS Code team to fix it. Someone should periodically go through these issues to see if they can be unblocked!
We also use milestones to track what issues are planned/or were closed for what release.
