Hi Paul,

we do not reopen closed issues when there are small enhancements. Since this is a new requirement, this should be handled in a new issue.

We just reopen an issue, if the implementation was not correct.

That's a question about your processes, not one we can really answer.

Generally, assuming a pretty standard and common way of doing things, no, you'd create a new issue, but that might not be the way your organisation really wants to work.  If it were me, I'd only re-open issues that have goine into a production system if they failed, got rolled back, or switched off.  An enhancement to production is a new enhancement to my mind.  But that's just the way I'd do it.
