Did they? Where? How can the end users find the information? I don't
think it's that clear for newcomers, especially.

I'd say it's yet another example of us managing jira issues in an
uncontrolled way. Say, we don't apply the patches to the trunk before
1.2 is released. Will you remember to correct it in jira? It will go
to the release notes of 1.2, but won't be there. I don't think we want
it, do we?

There're tons of emails every day and you expect people will follow
it? Ok, you might be right - they could follow the mailing list which
requires artifical skills, imho ;-) So, what's your opinion about
jira? Should it complement what we're doing or it introduces a burden
in our development process?

Sure, me too. Think about us and how much we need to remember as it's
not written anywhere. If we start losing control on what we're doing,
we'll lose users' patience and they'll fly away. I think misleading
information (like creating a report of what's been fixed between 1.1
and today) are worse than lack of any.

Of course, I may be mistaken, but regardless of where we'll end up
eventually I appreciate your reasoning and patience with bearing with
me :-)
