Subject CHANGES.txt vs. JIRA
Date Sat, 16 Feb 2008 14:22:16 GMT
I noticed the other day that Hadoop just uses JIRA to publish the  
CHANGES.txt.  Seems a lot easier to me, but wanted to see if anyone  
prefers having a local version that they can edit.


Versus Lucene Java's form:

The JIRA version is also less work, but at the tradeoff that it isn't  
as obvious who gets "credit" for the patch since you have to dig  
through URLs, etc.

I don't know how hard it would be to add it in JIRA, maybe we could  
add a "credit" field onto the fixed screen such that the committer,  
when resolving it can add the credits.

Or, maybe people don't care about the credits.  For me, I don't care,  
but I'm already a committer.  It may be helpful to have the credits  
when nominating new committers or maybe people want to be able to show  
their bosses the good work they've done.

In other words, I am open to whatever others want.
