I'd not add this: The issue is that it might be non-obvious that the CONTRIBUTING file contains instruction for the issue tracker compared to just contributing patches and some projects actually accept questions in GitHub's issue tracker. So the users come to the GitHub repository, want to open the issue with their question and see this: https://github.com/haproxy/haproxy/issues/new/choose Then they think: I don't have a bug to report and I don't want to suggest anything and thus they "open a regular issue". And then they see the empty input and happily ask their question. I would not assume malicious intent there. With the new issue template they'll see "Question" in the list and think: "A-ha! That's what I need", click on it and actually see the warning text and then hopefully stop creating the issue. So that paragraph you suggested might discourage users that actually read and understand if something is *slapped in their face* from HAProxy and does not help with users that don't read at all. We don't want to discourage the former group with such a passive-aggressive paragraph. Best regards Tim Düsterhus
