Subject Re: Preparing for JIRA
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2012 21:10:44 GMT

I think that going forward as you stated would be ok.  At this point I
think it's most important to know what the bugs are (and get issue numbers
assigned so we can manage them), then to worry about the neuances of some
of the history from the old repository.

I do think the version numbers and steps to reproduce are extremely
important however.  If the steps-to-reproduce end up as a comment, I think
that is acceptable (I just don't want to loose the content), but the
version number is something very important to filter on, esp. if we will
eventually be working with multiple versions in our trunk.
