Subject Re: Exposing JIRA issue types at GitHub PRs
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2019 06:51:40 GMT
Hi Dongjoon,
Thanks for the proposal! I like the idea. Maybe we can extend it to
component too and to some jira labels such as correctness which may be
worth to highlight in PRs too. My only concern is that in many cases JIRAs
are created not very carefully so they may be incorrect at the moment of
the pr creation and it may be updated later: so keeping them in sync may be
an extra effort..
