Subject Re: New jira fields
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2008 03:06:15 GMT
For these new fields, here are the relevant changes that I made to  

If your patch creates an incompatibility with the latest major  
release, then you must set the Incompatible change flag on the  
issue's Jira 'and' fill in the Release Note field with an explanation  
of the impact of the incompatibility and the necessary steps users  
must take.

If your patch implements a major feature or improvement, then you  
must fill in the Release Note field on the issue's Jira with an  
explanation of the feature that will be comprehensible by the end user.

Here are the relevant changes that I made to http://wiki.apache.org/ 

Once the review is complete (which means all suggestions from  
previous reviews have been satisfactorily incorporated and you  
believe the patch is ready to commit) then please set the Reviewed  
flag on the issue's Jira.
