Subject Re: 1.5.3 and 1.6.3
Date Wed, 27 May 2015 20:24:57 GMT
FWIW, I'm still triage'ing issues. I've finished all the 1.5.x issues,
and have moved on to 1.6.x issues.

For many of these, I just don't see a fixVersion happening for 1.6.3,
or even 1.6.4 or 1.6.5 (if those occur). So, I'll most likely just
drop 1.6.x from the fixVersion for these to avoid constant bumping. In
fact, I'll probably just drop all but the most recent working
branch... currently 1.8.0/master... for many of them.

It's not that these *can't be* fixed for 1.6.x, it's just that I don't
see that it is very probably that they will be, so rather than lie to
ourselves, I'd prefer to just be realistic and drop the older
fixVersions, rather than constantly bump them when we do bugfix
releases. If these get fixed, and they are fixed for an earlier
branch, great, we can update the fixVersion to include them.

The way I see it, the fixVersion has two roles: planning/declared
intent (for unresolved issues), and statement about which branch a fix
is included in (for resolved issues). I obviously won't change any
resolved issues. This is just about being realistic for unresolved
issues.

If I run into any critical or blocker issues, I probably won't bump or
drop those (at least, not without discussion on the issue), but
trivial or non-bug, or "unlikely to be fixed in an older version"
issues, those are the ones I plan to drop the old fixVersions on.

This is just triage... not final decisions... if I make a change you
wish to contest, please watch/follow the JIRA notifications and jump
in to comment (ideally, volunteering to fix the issue in question).
For some issues I've already passed, this has already happened, which
is great.

Anyway, this is just an update on what my intentions are, in case
anybody is curious about all the JIRA edits lately, and in the next
few days.
