Hi Dyre,

I'm afraid I can't be very helpful here. I don't know how to generate an 
xml report from a JIRA filter anymore. I thought that I would get an XML 
report by clicking on "XML" in the Issue Navigator box after running the 
filter. That, however, merely generated an xhtml version of the report 
and not the version containing the tags expected by the 
ChangesFileGenerator program. How are you generating an XML report?

One thing to look out for is this: ChangesFileGenerator seems to throw 
away all issues which are marked as fixed in previous releases. That is, 
ChangesFileGenerator is only trying to list the changes which JIRA says 
are specific to I (sort of randomly) sampled 3 issues visible 
through your "Derby 10.4 Fixed Bugs" filter and noticed that they are 
all marked with 10.3 as one of the "Fix Version" releases. This could be 
short-circuiting your run of genchanges.

Another thing to look out for is this: It appears to me that 
ChangesFileGenerator was custom-built for 10.3. In particular, there is 
code in makeJiraIssue() which seems specific to 10.3. Myrna may be able 
to shed more light on this topic.

Hope this helps,
