Subject Fix Version in Jira and reporting issues fixed in 10.2
Date Fri, 30 Jun 2006 21:10:12 GMT
Trying to query Jira for  report of all the issues fixed in 10.2 I see 
that  we also get  any issues that are already  fixed in  earlier 
versions but were also marked with Fix Version

This phenomenon is also apparent in the 10.2 release notes:

How can  I get a report for just the new fixes for  10.2?

Also, are we really handling Fix Version correctly? In the past I have 
worked with bug tracking systems where "Fix Version" is marked as the 
earliest release where the issue is fixed with  the assumption that all 
forward ports to higher rev levels are taken care of before the issue is 
closed.  This made it more clear how to mark fix version and  
facilitated this type of reporting.   I understand that the forward 
porting assumption might not be always the case in opensource, but I 
think it is the exception when this is not done and  I have heard folks 
comment that the multiple fix versions is confusing and I agree.    I 
think I'd like to see Fix Version get marked with the version reported 
by sysinfo  for the lowest  branch  fixed and then snapshot versions 
merged into the real release when it happens.   Thoughts?
