Subject Re: Assign JIRA tickets to someone else
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2018 07:58:10 GMT
In general there is nothing wrong with assigning a ticket to someone if you
know that this would not cause negative reaction from assignee side. The
thing is that community has a lot of members who knows each other in person
and in close contact for years. So there is nothing wrong if I assign a
ticket to my fellow. Especially if ticket is complex or critically
important for the product. These is no "project management" in such an
action.

On the other hand, we should not overuse this practice, and set specific
assignee only if there is a string reason for this.

All in all, remember that community is alive thing built of real people.
The more rules you set without a clear reason, the more uncomfortable it is
to be in such a community.
