Subject JIRA setup: groups or roles
Date Sat, 27 Oct 2007 22:11:52 GMT
Hi Hen,

Thanks for the comments.

I'm sending this issue back to the incubator, having determined that  
there's nothing confidential and the incubator might be the better  
place to continue (or close) the discussion. Also changing the subject.

I'll try to remove all of the groups that I know of, related to  
projects that I can fix, and add or update project roles.

Perhaps this would be a good thing for an incubator guide, since most  
jira projects now are established in the incubator.
