Re: Github Issues

Using Github issues is already a standard now, for reference this was the voting thread:


I agree that Github milestone tagging on a pull request is limited to one per PR which I don't like as well. However, there is a workaround that may be used. A PR can be part of multiple projects that can have lists of 'todo', 'in progress', 'done' etc. I had experimented with them here: https://github.com/apache/cloudstack/projects

We can experiment if milestone can be used to map a PR towards a release (useful for RM-ing) and use Github projects towards tagging/mapping a PR towards multiple releases? The other way in-addition we can explore could be to use Github labels?

Hi All,

We have been trialling replacing Jira with Github Issues.   I think that we should have a conversation about it before it become the new standard by default.

From my perspective, I don't like it.  Searching has become far more difficult, categorising has also. When there is a bug fix it can only be targeted for a single version, which makes them easy to lose track of, and when looking at milestones issues and PRs get jumbled up and people are commenting on issues when it should by the PR and vice-versa (yes I've done it too).
In summary, from an administrative point of view it causes a lot more problems than it solves.

I yield the floor to hear other people's opinions...

Kind regards,

Paul Angus
