Subject Re: Cleaning up JIRA
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 07:37:16 GMT
Folks, there is no sense in hording issues that we know will never be addressed and that do
nothing
else but clutter our issue tracker and block our view on the really useful ones. Please overcome
the
gatherer in you. Even the best idea won't help us if there is nobody interested in implementing
it
and it only contributes to obstrucing our view on important issues. Besides, those tickets
aren't
gone. They are simply closed.

Below is a draft of a text that I'm going to attach to the issues that will be bulk closed.
It makes
clear that the reporter is free to reopen the issue if it still persists or he feels strongly
about
it. In case of a feature request they are required to discuss it on the dev mailing list first.
I
hope that this will increase the chances of having only well thought-out ideas that are also
supported by the development community in our tracker.

And I really recommend reading [1].

Cheers,

Uli

This issue has been closed because it affects an old version of Tapestry or has no affected
version
number set, and is not currently assigned to any developer.

This ticket will most likely never be resolved or already has been resolved as a side-effect
of a
newer version of Tapestry.


DO NOT REOPEN IT! DO NOT CREATE A NEW TICKET WITH THE SAME CONTENT!


If you feel that the issue still persists, do the following:

1. Try again with the most recent version of Apache Tapestry

2a. If you still find a bug, open a new bug report, specify the exact version of Tapestry
and those
of any components you are using, describe expected and observed behavior, and attach a minimal
test
case demonstrating the issue. You will earn additional merit by attaching an automated test
and/or a
fix for the issue.

2b. If you want to request a new feature, you are expected to discuss it with the Tapestry
developer
community on the dev@tapestry.apache.org mailing list first. Include a link to the discussion
in the
mail archives in your ticket. If you don't, chances are that your ticket will be closed right
away.
