Inquiries about the Issue Links in Jira

Ming
Dear All

Sorry for the bothering, and I am a new user to the Jira system :-)

Could I inquiry you guys about the issue links in this system in terms of
the tag "is broken by/ breaks"?

I saw that issue https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1923 breaks
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2105 as specified in the tag
of "ISSUE LINKS".

How can I infer the meaning of "is broken by"? Does it mean that the issue
ACCUMULO-2105 is caused by the code committed in issue 1923?

and how do you know that? Have you conducted sorts of testing or it was
inferred by your domain knowledge?

I am curious about the practices of making such labels:-)

BTW, is there any documents explaining those tags used in this system?

Thanks very much!
Looking forward for your reply!

Best
Justin

Hey Justin - The "is broken by" and "breaks" labels are just one way to
link two issues in JIRA.  If you click the "More" button on an issue and
select "Link" you will see all the different ways this can be done.  When
you select "is broken by" on one issue, it will automatically apply the
"breaks" link on the other issue.

And how you know that an issue breaks another issue is probably a
combination of domain knowledge and testing.

One way I track down causes is using git.  If I track a bug down to
ABC.java, then running :

  git log -p -- ABC.java

is useful for finding when the bug was introduced.  When the commit is
found that introduced the bug its commit message may have the issue
number.
