Subject Using Jira and branches for Project Management
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2005 11:00:37 GMT
We are getting larger as a developer base. As a consequence there is an 
increasing tendencies for small numbers of devs to work on different 
sections of the code base. As a result we are becoming a little 
disorganised - one virtual team not knowing what the other is doing.

It is impossible to keep up with all the discussions on list and 
understand exactly what needs to be done/discussed to complete a job.

With the natural come and go of developers as other commitments keep 
them away from Forrest for a while we end up with partially complete 

Recently we had a discussion about using branches witin our development 
to ensure only complete functionlaity is in Trunk. This, ultimately, 
seems like a great idea and we need to action it, see [1] and the 
subsequent discussion in [2].


(we need to document this thread as part of our project participation 

In addition to this it is important that we keep track of what is going 
on in terms of strategy. There are so many great ideas here in Forrest 
that we simply can't implement them all.

Jira is the tool for keeping track of this stuff so that we can track 
and prioritise things. However I'm not too sure what the best way of 
utilising this resource is. DOes anyone have an experiences to share?
