Rick is correct, the ChangesFileGenerator has some very specific
details regarding 10.3. As I've mentioned before, I had major trouble
creating an xml file (partially because of my choice of browser, I now
think). I think the JiraConnector.java shows still what I used to
create my .xml in the end, and I think it was this query, or something
similar, that I used to get my .xml file:
  "http://issues.apache.org/jira/sr/jira.issueviews:" +
  "searchrequest-xml/temp/SearchRequest.xml?&pid=10594&resolution=1&" +
  "fixVersion=" +

I think this probably results in a bigger .xml file than what you're
using, so I had to narrow things down from there. Also, I made 4 trial
builds, so those too show up in the ChangesFileGenerator. They should
be removed now.

I wanted only those issues that were not already fixed in an already
released version...I think the tool automatically picked the last
released version (in my case,, but because of the two
versions off the 10.2 branch, there were a number of issues that had
been backported earlier, and were actually fixed in;  hence
that release shows up as to be excluded in the ChangesFileGenerator.

I think you'd want everything that's marked fixed, and, except if it's marked also fixed in,
(which issues would've gotten included into, or
which was also a released version, for those would likely be things
that have gotten backported after the initial release off the 10.3
branch. Issues that got marked fixed in (in addition to
10.4.0) would be ok to pick up. I think that's all the versions?

The ChangesFileGenerator should get modified...

I hope this makes sense...
