Subject Re: Not allowed to delete from Jira anymore?
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2006 23:30:05 GMT
I think we can give this a shot, although it may be the cause for 
confusion.  Given that we don't have recoverability, we might as well 
have multi-versioning :)

In the meantime, maybe we can log some bugs/feature requests against 
JIRA?  (a) ability to grant delete of elements of an issue without being 
able to delete the issue and (b) delete merely marks its status as 
deleted, it does not permanently delete and (c) because of -b-, add 
support for a purge operation.
