Subject RE: releases
Date Fri, 27 Oct 2006 01:29:11 GMT
I've been thinking this all through and I guess my question is with the
synchronization between Jira and svn. The fact that Resolved/Fixed is
usually tied to a commit shows we all think they are related: we're all
using Jira to reflect svn to some extent, right?

I'd like to be able to look at Jira and know if a fix for an issue has
been committed to a particular branch. I had thought that's what Fix
Version/s meant, though I see that's not exactly it.

And an observation: shouldn't everything currently in Resolved have a
FVs that includes 2.1? I can see optionally adding 2.0.1, too, but since
it's already committed to trunk, it's obviously planned to be fixed in
2.1, right?

What about adding a Committed field? Looking at the docs, it should be
possible. I'm actually more interested in that field then I am in FVs,
if not simply because it's a lot less ambiguous and subjective. I don't
need to know the release process to interpret it.

I think it could facilitate some things, should we ever want to. I
wonder how the RM handles making patch releases. If it were me, tasked
with making a 2.0.1 release (should that be decided) and it was decided
to have a lot of the patches in, my to-do list would be all those issues
that have FV with 2.0.1 and did not have Committed with 2.0.1. Then I'd
update the Jira issues as I did the merges. If it's really a simple
release, it might be overkill but as soon as it gets a little
complicated, it seems like the tracking would be really handy.

Overkill? If a description of how we are supposed to be using AVs and
FVs had existed before I started, I'd probably never have even thought
about it this much. But having thought of it, I'm actually still in
favor of it. I really like the idea of being able to go to Jira and know
which branches had fixes committed on them.
