Re: [scrumdevelopment] Re: JIRA - tools question
Best of luck to you. It's tough trying to help solve problems via the "email machine" sometimes -- so much context is lost. I wish you well.-------

Yeah, I have been lurking, I mostly see productive, if sometimes high-handed, threads - but I didn't quite expect that sort of response. Again, there are clearly some process issues on our side, and perhaps I should have been more clear about them.
I am new to the team and am getting my head around how it works - it is an agile process, but still a WIP.
There are definitely process questions I have, which I want to raise - but right now I'm still getting my bearings.

Whether you are doing Scrum correctly or incorrectly is probably still up for discussion, as you haven't provided much evidence that you are doing Scrum. Further, what evidence you have provided has been in non-Scrum terms. (What is a producer? What is a lead game designer? What is a business owner? What is a 'resource'? None of these are Scrum terms.) Maybe if you told us some more about your Scrum implementation, we might be able to help more.

I'm just saying that you seem to be asking for more drugs without letting us know that you're currently on the path to recovery. I suspect you'll get more support and more advice if you can tell us that you are on a good Scrum path.

- In my experiences using and coaching teams using GH, we very rarely even saw/knew about the underlying JIRA system. 90+% of the time we used the card walls("boards", "planning board", etc) and a couple of searches. We didn't even have to know that JIRA existed, except for some very default/basic administrative config that is shared by both.
I have really enjoyed numerous Atlassian tools. I get especially amused when someone tells me about their "Sharepoint wiki." I show them Confluence, and they usually are completely hooked and realize how much Confluence kicks the pants off of Sharepoint (at least in the way that most dev teams use them).-------

We have started to test out GH as well. The downside to GH over Rally and VersionOne is that GH is a plugin on top of a system that is designed as an issue tracker where the others are designed from the ground up to be Agile management tools. The up side is that JIRA is very customizable and integrates with a large number of other tools including several SCM tools.

We use the greenhopper plugin for Jira.
Works fine for planning sprints and see what is done and what not.
