Subject Re: Setting JIRA fix versions for 3.0.0 releases
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2016 18:02:34 GMT
If I don't hear otherwise, I'd like to go ahead and do the bulk fix version
update on JIRA for 3.0.0-alpha1, diffing from 2.7.0. Will wait until EOD
tomorrow in case there's more discussion. If any one is willing to help
review my script and JIRA queries, that'd also be great.

I can also do the 2.8.0 bulk update (diffing from 2.7.0), since it should
be a very similar process.

Best,
Andrew
