Hi there,

thank you martijn for the detailed information. In fact i have already 
signed and sent a CLA a few months ago.
I just signed up at Empire-db on JIRA and tried to figure out how attach 
code to a jira ticket. However i couldn't #
find the tickets you mentioned, I just found the issues that are 
reported but couldn't find a way how to attach code to one of them.

Should therefore a new issue or ticket be opend? How is that done and 
how to attach code to it?

Thanks in advance.

best regards
