Contributed Patch

A community-contributed patch to a particular version of sakai. The origin of such issues may lie in Bugs or Feature Requests which Sakai has not yet evaluated for implementation. Under such circumstances a linked issue is generally created by cloning the orignal issue in order to track Sakai's work on the issue. [Use at your own risk!]



  1. Select an appropriate issue from the list of issues "QA Awaiting Verification".
  2. Attempt to verify the issue.
    • In the process of verifying the issue, if you discover a different problem, create a new issue to capture it, rather than re-opening the current issue and re-using it; reserve re-opening only if the orginal problem is still present.
    • Some issues can not be easily verified and may require special testing condtions or input from developers.
  3. If the issue passes verification:
    • Verify the Fix Version is correct. Generally the Fix Version of an issue will be correctly set when it is merged into the branch, however, under certain circumstances, such as re-resolving re-opened issues, the Fix Version may need updating. If its not clear which version the fix was actually in, simply update it to the version on which you've just verified the issue. (Note: issues can also have more than one Fix Version, such as being fixed in the next release plus in another version's Maintenance Branch, so be careful to accidently previously verified Fix Versions when adding your own.)
    • Close the issue. This will move the issue from the "Awaiting Verification" to the "Verified" list in Jira.
  4. If it fails verification:
    • Update Affects Version to include version tested.
    • Reopen issue and re-assign to project team leader. If is not clear to whom the issue needs to be re-assigned, then assign it to default.
