seen this.

Another way to do it could be to create sub-issues, one for each branch, 
so you have a super-issue for all branches, and a sub-issue for the 
individual branches. Then we'd need a tag for "test-branch" which could 
be used by jenkins to know which branch to patch-test against. ]]

The advantage of this approach is that the sub-task mechanism is built 
into JIRA, lets you see at a glance from the super-task which branches 
are still open, and lets you have a sub-lifecycle (progress, wontfix, 
logged hours) for each branch, and you could easily separate the jenkins 

The risk is that discussions would take place in the sub-tasks, not the 
supertask, but that is a team process issue
