Subject Re: [JENKINS] - Removal of top level views
Date Mon, 01 May 2017 08:55:27 GMT
Hi,

One strange thing is happenning: when you're not authenticated, the "letter 
views" are not visible: strangely, the view that are visible are exactly the 
view that are proposed to be deleted.

Is there a bug somewhere?

Notice that this does not change anything to the proposal:
- creating project views as top view is simply not scalable given our size [1]
- when people create new views, they are authenticated, then see the letter 
views

Regards,

Hervé
