Subject Re: Jira field definitions

Hi Dag,

Thanks for pulling this together. +1 to the changes which Kathey 
suggested. I believe you are recommending the following:

1) To reword some fields on our JIRA form and to move some checkboxes 
around. I think these changes are well defined.

2) To remove some values for the Issue Type field (I think this is the 
only instance where you are proposing to remove information). I believe 
you have said that you will bulk re-assign all "New Feature" values to 
"Improvement". What are you proposing to do with the "Wish" and "Test" 

3) To update the wiki page which explains how to fill-in a JIRA.

Once you have specified what to do with the lingering questions in (2), 
I think that you will have a well-defined proposal for a community vote. 
I regard this as a procedural issue so I think that the rules of 
engagement would be majority vote by PMC members: 

This looks like a good step in the right direction. Once the vote closes 
and the form is changed, I look forward to helping triage the open bugs.

One comment below...

I think you mean to say "Note that users..."
