Subject Re: [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-679) Request to add a "Usability" component/section to this JIRA
Date Fri, 17 Jun 2005 11:54:59 GMT
Once an issue type is picked, I think you can still
select multiple applicable components.

For example, if issue type is a "Bug", you can specify
that it is a bug relating to the CORBA component *and*
the OpenEJB component.

Or if the issue type is an "Improvement", you can
specify that it is relating to the kernel and Tomcat

If the above is correct, then issue type of
"Usability" would work quite well; allowing the user
to specify the related components (if she/he is able
to determine it), or Unknown otherwise.
