    1313If you have been directed to this page, it may be because a core developer has closed a ticket that you are interested in as WONTFIX, which can be disappointing.

    15 A WONTFIX means that the developer currently thinks that, while the suggestion is good in theory, it lacks enough merit to exceed the cost it will add to the maintenance of Django. Please realize that every API/feature added to Django needs to be maintained across several versions. The more public APIs that are exposed to users, the more difficult it is to refactor and add other features. Changes to existing functionality can also cause breakages for other people, and some changes are just really difficult to implement.

    1717Of course, the developer could be wrong! Since this tends to be a matter of judgement, and not clear cut, we've found the best way to deal with the disagreement, get visibility from more developers and make progress is to **start a discussion** on the mailing list, rather than re-open the ticket.
