Subject Re: Can we stop continually moving Devtools JIRAs to the next release?
Date Thu, 25 Sep 2008 18:55:30 GMT
I think the problem is in setting the fix version too soon on many of 
these JIRAs.  For the 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 server releases I tried to avoid 
setting the fix version unless it was really a target for the release or 
we were ready to check-in a fix.  Perhaps we can do the same for devtools.
