I think as Jean said keeping and changing subject lines to reflect the
true discussion is vital. I don't think we do a good job here. I think
sometimes we continue a discussion as Jira comments when really it has
expanded to be a wider topic than that specific Jira entry. For example
there is some discussion about metadata queries and backwards/forwards
comptability (I think) but it's hidden in one of the non-descript JBDC
4.0 Jira entries "add blah blah methods to blah blah class".
