Subject Re: JIRA and Git - Achieving Harmony
Date Sun, 27 Nov 2011 13:37:05 GMT
Hello Randall,

I have not looked to deeply into this post yet (time!!) but from the
outline I think it might be very helpful.

@olamy is an ASF fellow too

basically this is a maven plugin which creates a patch an attaches it to Jira:

Command is like: mvn patch-tracker:create

Probably we should consider this for the git workflow
