I really hate trackers to begin with ... I hate how you need to go
through pages of inane details that don't really fit our project
structure anyway and how, while doing this you basically, as chef would
put it, "waiiit, and you wait, and you wait, and you wait ... and you
wait, and you wait, and you waiiiiiit ...."
As some of you know I'd much rather deal with shared todo lists but
that's another story.
Still, I can almost and very grudgingly accept that trackers are a
necessary evil. Just now however, I tried to enter a bunch of issues in
our JIRA and half of them appear with duplicate numbers. As a result
there's no way to edit half the issues because clicking on their link
sends you the wrong ticket.
And now I can't even show you the page with the query that shows the
issues, because of JIRA's preference not to use page specific URLs and
because all pages I see appear as
I am therefore attaching an image.
Maybe this is related to the recent update on java.net but it doesn't
really matter, I think we've had it with JIRA, so this is really to
announce that after we are done with the github migration we'll probably
setup a Trac of our own and migrate all tickets there.
Pavel is also almost done setting up a mailman instance for us, so we'll
drop SYMPA soon after.
