Subject Re: Question on ZK commit/patch policy.
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2019 18:00:21 GMT
Even on "trivial" changes having a Jira is very useful. Jira issues show up in Release Notes
and when end users search for problems/solutions. Even a trivial change may be important to
some user of ZooKeeper who might want to be able to check Jira to see when/why something happened.
