  <pre wrap="">I notice that some folks are deleting jira attachements when they attach
a new version of a patch or functional/design spec. I personally think
this should not be encouraged, it's sometimes helpful to have the
history of the patch and especially helpful to have the history of a spec.

Does anyone think it's a good idea to delete old attachements?

I can see arguments either way... Last time I thought this was
discussed, the consensus was to delete previous patch/spec if the new
one completely replaces the old one. Here is the link to previous
discussion.<br>

<span>DERBY-332 is a poster child for confusion. I applied a <b

on May 5 </span><br>

1 and </span><br>
<span>the April 27 <b

uploaded. In the meantime I had even forgotten that I </span><br>
<span>had applied a <b

back in May. It got untangled yesterday.

<span>If I remember right, it was just a month ago that we were
discovering </span><br>
<span>that we had so many patches posted to derby-dev that we were
starting to </span><br>
<span>lose track of them, especially when new patches were replacing <b

ones.
