Github’s projects structure provides access to all reported issues and you can track the state of each report.
Please help the Flutter Dev Team to identify bugs in the framework and continue to rate already known issues. This will help to improve the whole framework step by step.
As Filip and Andrew state in the Boring Show: “The issues with the most thumps up will have the more attention to it.” The reactions are used by the Engineering Team to sort the issues by their urgency. Therefore please engage in bug reporting in order to improve the Flutter framework.
I hope this article helps you to file bug reports correctly and promote more community engagement by all Flutter developers.
