Subject Re: [general] How to link JIRA issues and commits
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 05:40:59 GMT
Hi Stefan,
I'm not a committer to the project, but I've worked on other projects with
svn and JIRA.  If you use the Eclipse, there's a plugin called Mylyn that
you can use that makes this process a little easier.  As you work on an
issue, Mylyn keeps track of the files that you worked on (called a context
or change set).  To commit all changes for a particular issue, you simply
open the issue in Eclipse, and commit the files that you see listed under
the Context tab.  You can also attach the context to the issue, this makes
it easier if the issue is reopened in the future, since Mylyn automatically
reopens all files that are in the attached context -- so somebody can pickup
where you left off.  You can see a demo of this here:

Hope this helps,
