Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Relax strict requirement of JIRA ID for PRs
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2018 14:42:14 GMT
Ron, for this I think we would be using Github Issues if we were not using
Jira.  Essentially all of the project information would be found in the
same place rather than the user having to discover all the different
systems that we use to track things and then try to make sense of it.
