it's been a while since the last update about the changes in Jira
going forward. As discussed in the review on Gerrit and during last
year's contributors summit , the plan is to automate handling of Jira
issues in the Need More Information (NMI) state.
The automation rules have been defined and tested, and are now ready to
be deployed in production. To avoid major disruption in the event there
are corner cases not covered during testing, we will enable the
automation rules on the QTQAINFRA project only at first. This happens
this afternoon (CET), and affects 26 issues. Any issue in said project
that transitions to the NMI state going forward, will automatically be
In brief: issues that stay in the NMI state for more than 2 weeks
without activity will receive an automatic comment as a reminder that
the issue cannot be resolved without further information. If yet another
2 weeks pass without new activity, the issue will transition to closed
state with an automatic comment that explains why the issue was closed.
For more information about how the automation rules are defined, refer
to the NMI handling section on the Jira tips and tricks wiki page .
Please direct complaints and any other concerns to the Jira
administration email list (jira-admin at qt-project.org).
Best wishes for a productive day,
