Subject Re: Sidebar: issues targeted for 1.4.0
Date Wed, 17 Jun 2015 19:55:12 GMT
Hey Sean,

Thanks for bringing this up - I went through and fixed about 10 of
them. Unfortunately there isn't a hard and fast way to resolve them. I
found all of the following:

- Features that missed the release and needed to be retargeted to 1.5.
- Bugs that missed the release and needed to be retargeted to 1.4.1.
- Issues that were not properly targeted (e.g. someone randomly set
the target version) and should probably be untargeted.

I'd like to encourage others to do this, especially the more active
developers on different components (Streaming, ML, etc).

One other question is what the semantics of target version are, which
I don't think we've defined clearly. Is it the target of the person
contributing the feature? Or in some sense the target of the
committership? My preference would be that targeting a JIRA has some
strong semantics - i.e. it means the commiter targeting has mentally
allocated time to review a patch for that feature in the timeline of
that release. I.e. prefer to have fewer targeted JIRA's for a release,
and also expect to get most of the targeted features merged into a
release. In the past I think targeting has meant different things to
different people.

- Patrick
