Creating Pull Requests and Getting Them Accepted
I'm a newcomer to the MuseScore dev space, and so I ask the following in good faith and out of curiosity:
Do PRs need an associated open issue or formal node (forum post) to link to in order to be realistically considered for merging into Master? If so, is it necessary for a dev to formally create an open issue or post if they plan on personally pursuing a bug fix or feature request that they themselves came upon?
How are PRs evaluated and how does one know if a PR has been passed over temporarily, or if it has been permanently deemed not valuable?
What is the usual time frame involved in merging a PR (between PR being posted and PR being accepted and merged/closed)?
Who are the individuals with merging permissions?
