Subject: RE: [office] Unnecessary cloning of JIRA issues

The reason I cloned that particular one (and maybe others, I forget right now), is that a resolution was set and I didn't want to simply erase it (plus I didn't know how).  I have never tried the procedure Andreas suggests, and I think I had already clones the one of interest by then.  Not sure.

In any case, there is a lot of commentary that may not be so important and it would be useful to have a fresh sheet as well as a link back to the old stuff.

If there is a different agreement, I will honor that.

In most cases it will be sufficient to simply re-target the issue by 
setting a new "affects version".  I can imagine some less common 
situations where an issue is partially addressed in ODF 1.2 with 
completion in ODF-Next, but that is better handled via sub issues, to 
preserve the connection.

In any case, I think the recommendation for ODF-Next issues was, that if 
someone was interested in owning a particular issue, they should assign it 
to themselves and set Affects Version to ODF 1.2 and Fix Version to one of 
the ODF 1.3 CSD's.  For issues that do not have owners, we can let them 
sit for now.
