Subject Re: [jira] Patch available setting
Date Wed, 15 Nov 2006 00:37:01 GMT
I thought we had it configured that when a JIRA is modified, the
reporter is notified directly...  I'm not sure that really helps though. 
  I wonder if we should just open things up a bit and let any user 
modify a JIRA and see what happens.
