Subject Re: Use of JIRA was [jira] [Resolved] (MAHOUT-752) Semantic Vectors: generate and use vectors from User/Item Taste data models

I'm fine with that. No problem in putting stuff in JIRA per se -- it's
just making sure we preserve JIRA's role as a workflow tool. That is,
as you say, if such issues were marked early as WontFix or something
similar that would solve it; we wouldn't have issues floating around
that appear to want review and committing when they don't.

ideas with real patches, which, at the end of the discussion may result in a "won't fix",
but it shouldn't be decided up front just because it is still being thought through.  Naturally,
a discussion on dev@ might be warranted first if no code is involved, but by putting it in
JIRA we have captured: the idea, the code, and the contributor's intent to donate it.   Someone
else or Lance may very well come along and improve on it such that it does become commit worthy.
 Iterating on ideas in JIRA should be encouraged and I think Lance let everyone know right
up front that they can choose to ignore this for now if they are so inclined so as to not
waste anyone's time.
