Subject Re: Auto-linking from PRs to Jira tickets
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2020 01:24:35 GMT
Right, what I'm talking about is linking in the other direction, from
GitHub to Jira.

i.e. you can type "SPARK-1234" in plain text on a PR, and GitHub will
automatically turn it into a link to the appropriate ticket on Jira.
