Good idea - we use JIRA for product backlog, and whilst GreenHopper is on the (far) horizon, the Product Owner has to maintain an Excel spreadsheet for ordering the backlog. Not sure I like the "exposed" ordering numbers though. It remind me of coding with line numbers (e.g. BASIC) and using units of 10 for numbers, so I have some room to add lines in between. Simple and effective, but I think my Product Owner would prefer to be shielded from that. Good feature though. It's the primary thing we'd like to add to JIRA for our Scrum work.
I take the point. We will look to make the 'numbers' optionals.
Thanks for this plugin. Anyway I have a bug! :( Used with a frontal apache (with APJ), It doesn't find the application path for its actions and resources. For example in the column, It creates action with the following value: https://mycompany/plugins/servlet/faIssueOrderer instead https://mycompany/jira/plugins/servlet/faIssueOrderer The contextPath It retrieves is wrong, and there's no way to configure it. Can you help or provide a fix please?
