  Please observe the following guidelines when using Jira for Hadoop.
  
+  * Give issues a meaningful name. "Hadoop Bug I have found" is not appropriate. Better something
like "NPE during datanode startup on OS/X"
+ 
-  * Keep issue descriptions short.  The issue description field should briefly describe a
''problem'', not a solution.  Detailed descriptions and proposed solutions should be subsequently
added in the comments.  This is preferred for several reasons.  The description is included
in every email Jira sends about an issue, so a long description generates big messages.  Also,
solutions should be arrived at through consensus-building discussion, so it is inappropriate
to present a solution at the outset.

   * Don't edit comments.  If you make a mistake, add another method clarifying things.  This
makes it easier for folks to follow the discussion.

    1. Configure your email client to filter all but new issue creation messages, skipping
messages sent to the -dev list from Jira whose subject does not begin with "Created";
    1. For new issues that you wish to follow, use Jira's "watch" feature, so that emails
are sent directly to you.
  
+  * Configure the JIRA portal to show only the project(s) that you care about; consider adding
the Issues in Progress and Assigned To Me portlets.
