Hi Hen,

anything that makes working through the issues easier is good. But I think
i don't understand your proposal completely. Do you want to create a new
version that is called "feature requests"? That would feel like duplicating
information available as ticket type.

As far as I understand you're describing a ticket life cycle. I though jira
was so super flexible that you can model this kind of stuff with it.
