Subject RE: Support for Windows Universal apps (Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1)
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 08:38:56 GMT
Created new feature to track this work - CB-6976 Add support for Windows Universal apps (Windows
8.1 and WP 8.1)

Should we create a new Jira component specially for this? Windows Universal apps vs Windows
8.1 vs Windows?

I personally prefer just Windows since:
1. this is what we target to - single 'windows' platform and single 'windows' tag (similar
to iOS where we don't have separate iPhone/iPad components);
2. easy to use/understand for developers. For example, w/o knowing what Windows Universal
apps are it will be hard for developers to report new issue and assign correct component.

I have discussed this at length already with Parashuram and completely support the proposal
as documented, which might not be evident from just looking at the docs and links.
Since there has not been much action on this item, I think we are okay to just move ahead

Let's consider this last call.
