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 original issue in order to track Sakai's work on the issue. [Use at your own risk!]

  • Branch versions as Fix Versions (e.g., Nightly/SVN-Trunk, 2.3.x, 2.4.x) – Generally the only branch version a developer needs to be concerned with is Nightly/SVN-Trunk. Only the Branch Manager or project team members dealing with maintenance branches will need to worry about adding other branch versions (e.g., 2.3.x, 2.4.x) as Fix Versions; and, those versions should only be used when the fix is actually checked-in to the branch, it should not be used as an indication that one would like a fix checked-in. This will ensure that the issue continues to appear listed in the correct Jira filters.
  • SAK Experimental Branches (i.e., branch) – Use the generic "branch" version as the Target or Fix Version when working on subtasks under a SAK Experimental Branch. If and when the branch is merged into trunk, please rememer to update the Fix Version to the standard "Nightly/SVN-trunk" (or the appropriate maintenance branch version, if that's where its being merged).
