Subject [Math] "due-to" attribute in "changes.xml"
Date Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:26:59 GMT

Are there criteria about filling the "due-to" attribute of an issue
record in the "changes.xml" file?

Current practice seems that reporting an issue does not by itself
warrants such an attribution.
Indeed, as I understand it, the attribute is a place-holder for when
an issue is fixed by a contributor who hasn't commit access. IMHO,
this implies that the reporter (or another contributor) provided a
patch or non-trivial insights that led to the fix.

IOW, when a developer with commit access fixes a bug or implements a
feature request mostly by himself, the name of the original reporter
should not appear in the release notes, as if he were the contributor.
