Right now a Version's start date is determined by the earliest start date of an issue. This causes problems if an issue was "pushed" from a previous version. I propose having an optional start date on versions, so things like the Gantt can use the actual start date.


  • Version "Old", represents 6 months of time - due 2010-05-01
  • Version "New", represents the next 6 months of time - due 2010-12-01
  • Issue 100 created 2010-01-01

When Issue 100 is assigned to Version Old, Version Old's date range is from 2010-01-01 to 2010-05-01. If Issue 100 is reassigned to Version New, Version Old's date range becomes 'nil' to 2010-05-01. Version New's date range is now 2010-01-01 to 2010-12-01, which includes the entire Version Old.

[#279] Add an optional Start Date to Versions


Updated by Eric Davis at 2011-03-14 02:21 am

I've added an optional start date to Versions. I cleared the "field_effective_date" i18n key because that was using Date when it should have been Due date (though it's also called effective_date in the code).

This should go into a major version because of the database change (e.g. 2.0.0)
