Subject Apache Jira link relationship definitions?
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2015 18:27:41 GMT
Does anyone know where the definition for the various relationship types in Apache Jira is
(either Apache-wide, or how some projects use them)?

In particular, I'm looking for something that answers questions like:

  * What's the difference between "is part of" and "is contained by"?
  * What's the different between "contains" and "incorporates"?
  * Which relationship types apply to the Jira bug reports or tasks themselves (e.g., "is
duplicate of") and which apply to the /fixes/  for the bugs (and, maybe, which apply specifically
to the physical patches vs. the logical fixes)?

For example, if Jira entry B has the "depends on" relationship to another Jira entry A, does
that mean that B's patch won't apply until A's patch is applied?  Or does it just mean that
the fix for B won't work until A's fix is in (i.e., B's patch might apply but B's new test
will fail until A's patch is applied)?
