Accumulo previously used JIRA, but now uses GitHub issues. All new issues should be opened using GitHub. If working an existing JIRA issue, please do the following :
- Open a new GitHub issue or pull request.
- Link the GitHub issue to the JIRA issue.
- Link the JIRA issue to the GitHub issue.
- Close the JIRA issue as a duplicate.
Eventually, JIRA will be transitioned to a read-only state for reference. For finding issues to work, there may still be open issues labeled for newbies in JIRA.
GitHub Project Boards (Projects)
Project boards (also “projects”) are used to track the status of issues and
pull requests for a specific milestone. Projects with names such as
1.10.1 are used for tracking issues associated with a particular release
and release planning. These are set up as basic Kanban boards with automation,
In progress, and
Done statuses. These projects are marked as
“closed” when the version indicated is released. Other projects may exist for
miscellaneous puposes, such as tracking multiple issues related to a larger
effort. These projects will be named appropriately to indicate their purpose.
