Subject Re: Concerning Sentry: A disagreement over the Apache Way and graduation
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2015 19:59:14 GMT
I am part of Sentry community and I do not think we ever had an instance
(in my honest knowledge) where a jira was committed before people had
opportunity to respond/discuss. Most of the communication as I see is on
jira (ideas and design), some on email (roadmap, design, release, doc,
other) and review board( design and implementation details). We did take
the mentors suggestions seriously about preferring email discussions over
jira and have been moving some of the discussions to email list. Although I
agree that there is very little value in doing so, I am not saying there is
no value. These are just my thoughts and would be more than happy if people
can convince me why we should duplicate or prefer email.

Pro email:

   1. There might be more people familiar with email as compared to jira.
   So there is a chance that more people might speak up. Might be perceived as
   more inclusive.

Pro jira:

   1. It is easy to track specific items. People can just watch the
   specific jiras, as compared to creating fancy email filters.
   2. All discussion is in one place. With email lists, often times
   discussions are split across threads.
   3. Nice history of a feature. It is easy to link related features and
   hence it is easy to follow the lineage of a specific feature. This is
   almost impossible if we do not capture enough information on jira.
