Thanks for the update and suggestions.
Are the different stages like EDR, PDR, PFD, Final, etc. maintained as
"release" in JIRA, too?
That would certainly help to see which of them were done with each step
together. We do this here in our project even on an Iteration level (JIRA5
and above is getting more and more "Agile" features, but the simple release
has been around since I know it)
Thanks and Regards,
