Subject Re: Github pull request hooks
Date Mon, 10 Feb 2014 13:49:39 GMT
cc'ing infra, as this is really an infra topic.
Yes, it is possible - anything is possible, but it will require quite a
lot of work from Infra to make this possible.

I would suggest you create a new JIRA ticket with this _wish_ and label
is as Git+Wilderness, and I'll try to figure out whether we can support
this or not.

With regards,

Can I become more greedy and ask a follow on question/request?

JIRA tickets updated with github PR’s? I mean similar to git and svn commits if a pull request
is created with a title including issue number (like PROJECT-XXXX), then it might be useful
to have a comment added to the JIRA. This of course raises another question of duplicate emails
to the dev list for these PR's.

an issue created in a project JIRA; creates a github PR; all discussion of PR is recorded
on the JIRA; once a consensus (direct or assumed lazy) is reached, a committer/pmc member
will merge the PR closing both github PR and resolving JIRA.
