If you’d like to learn more about the buildpacks' architecture and the design decisions being made, it may be helpful to read through some of our past and present Requests For Comments (RFCs). These are documents written by members of the Paketo community to propose technical changes to the project or one of its buildpacks.


Do you have ideas for the future of the project? Well, we’d certainly like to hear them! Check out our Discussions portal to weigh in on ongoing conversations or to start a new one.
