Description

The history of milestones is a history of SVN release tags on different branches here.

After years or months when I look into the history of milestones I need to know what SVN branch and tag the milestone actually was.

One could say, add a note in the milestone description but I'd prefer if the creation/closing of a milestone offers to set the branch and tag information. And also displays it in the same way as the date information.

I used your search engine to find out if it was already desired but haven't found such wish.

This is tied very closely to one way of using milestones, which is not necessarily everyone's use. I would say that adding the relevant links to the milestone description is both sufficient and much more flexible.

Suggesting worksforme.

That is why I wrote "if SVN is used". But if SVN is used, I suppose it's the common way to understand milestones as releases and releases are usually tagged and branched in projects chained in a software production cycle.

Of course, both special links would just act like a reminder to set them. Although I can image one could let base a tree view of the roadmap on it, a tree like the SVN trunk and its branches…

Another idea could be to modify commit-hook scripts — in the same spirit as for automatic ticket updates — to recognize statements in commit messages, e.g., "closes milestone:xyz", and do some proper adjustments of targeted milestone descriptions.

That should cover the case even for Mercurial et.al.

Replying to mrelbe:

This can be done in a plugin, using the IRepositoryChangeListener interface.

This feature could easily be implemented by supporting custom fields for milestones.
