but after a new release, the issue would effectively apply to both trunk and the new release, and an issue can only be associated with one version in JIRA;

if the issue isn't fixed by the time the release occurs, then it is unlikely to be fixed in the release version as much as being fixed in trunk; so that would argue for keeping the issue associated with trunk and not the new version

so i think i don't agree with this suggestion as i understand it

Hi list,

In order to keep trace about works on versions, we should use the Jira
feature to indicate what version is fixed.

in almost cases, fixes are against the trunk. Since in Jira one can
rename the version name (see [1]), during the FOP release process (at
branching or tagging stage), we could rename (in Jira) the "trunk" to
the released version name, then create a new "trunk" entry.

WDYT?

If an issue requires changes in code, then committers need to resolve it and update the "Fix" version. Finally, Jira creates "Release notes" based on this information and one should consider if and how this affects the usage of the status.xml
