Re: How JIRA Issues are Classified
Hi Israel,
It does seem somewhat arbitrary how issues are classified sometimes. :) At
release time in the past I have gone and reclassified stuff that I thought
was in the wrong place.

Thanks for bringing up the point. Do you have any specific suggestions?
Personally I had forgotten there was a Documentation type and agree it's
good practice to mark doc JIRAs as such.
