Jenkins : Instructions for Committers

Fixing Defects in Issue Tracker

Per Kohsuke Kawaguchi:

When you make a bug fix, would you please have the commit message
contain an issue ID in "JENKINS-1234" form?

There's a daemon that's checking all the commit messages and once it
finds this kind of links, it'll do the cross linking between commits and

If you also put a marker like "[FIXED JENKINS-1679]" it will also
automatically mark the bug as closed for you, so you'll save time.

And finally, when you make a bug fix, please update
trunk/www/changelog.html and note your bug fix. This helps us track
which bug fix went in when.
