Issue Types

We are currently using the following Issue Types in Jira:

  • Bug - an error in design or implementation which directly impedes a user from achieving the expected result
  • Task - a new capability being added to Sakai
  • Feature Request - a desired capability, which may be selected for implementation in a future release of Sakai
  • Contributed Patch - a community-contributed patch to particular version of sakai. use at your own risk! 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.
