From time to time we get questions which seem to be feature requests for specific packages, editors and so on. In some cases the appropriate authors are active on the site and may report back that they have added the feature (for example, I do this sometimes for
siunitx). On the other hand, many of these cases cannot be handled in this way, either because they will not be added or because the authors are not active here.
I think it's important that we have a position on when these questions should be left open, and when they should be closed, and also how they should be closed.
