Re: RT now imports new tags automatically
Message ID:

Regarding this commit:

    RT now imports new tags automatically
    New perl releases are detected via an every-hour cron job, which will
    update the relevant custom fields.  This step is thus now unnecessary.

M       Porting/release_managers_guide.pod

There's a fatal flaw in only importing git tags into RT automatically.
When a commit is made and a bug fixed, that fix will first appear in the
*next* release, which hasn't been made or tagged yet. So for example
RT currently gives me 'fixed in' options up to 5.25.2, yet any fix I
apply now I need to mark as (will be) fixed in 5.25.3. Marking it as fixed
in 5.25.2 would be factually wrong.

Diplomacy is telling someone to go to hell in such a way that they'll
look forward to the trip
