Just click on the "Resolve Issue" button, get the resolve screen, fill it out and submit it.

Hope not. If not, I can grant them.

Not really. That's the version when the problem was found. It might not be fixed. The field Fixed Version is for noting what release the fix was put in.

Yes. I've not used it, but it preferable to doing the same repetitious task. And it cuts down on the amount of mail I get. (I get one for each action in Jira.) I think it is done by performing a search and then applying a change to the entire search result.

I think that the tracker will become more useful. There has been a recent decided change where people have said that we should be posting patches in Jira. I think that is probably a very good way to collaborate.

For JSword, we have all Jira issues going to the jsword-devel mailing list. This has helped to foster collaboration and tracking of changes.

I'm at the end of my day, but I'll be glad to help tomorrow, if you need it.
