Subject Re: Preparing Ambari 1.7.0 branch
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2014 23:20:53 GMT
Is the definition of Blocker/Critical etc. standard - if not can you host
it in Ambari wiki.

Also, I assume the Fix Version/s should include 1.7.0.

This brings up another question -

What is the Fix Version for JIRAs that are not targeted for 1.7.0 - is it
empty or we have a version number for post 1.7.0?
