In a bid to reassure the existing user base and to reinforce the quality of the workspace, GitHub has announced a refining addition to the platform, Project Paper Cuts. The new project aims at fixing smaller bits of code and related UI issues that users face during any project development workflow.

 
 
GitHub says that this project is to directly address the small but persistent frustrations that the user base has been telling them for a while now. This project is to make those ‘small improvements that make a big difference’.
 
The project will be working directly with the community to fix small to medium sized workflow problems and will also aim to improve the UI/UX. It will also find ways to make quick improvements to nagging issues that are often encountered in the projects and fixes on issues that have the most impact but have little to none discussions.

GitHub has always had feedback channels that influenced our product, though we aim to be more open and transparent with this work. We’re not only listening to email, sales, support, and Twitter. We’re also looking at the wider GitHub community’s creation of self-organized ‘feature request’ repositories and browser extensions, as well as actively asking for feedback about the small things that irritate you the most.”, wrote Luke Hefson of Product Management at GitHub, on the official blog post.

The platform will be fielding feedback internally with a spotlight on fixes that will have the most impact with the least process, friction, discussion and dependencies, and shipping. The project is a one-up in the process of feedback and consumer development and a big step in building a better community.
