As part of the process of curating a backlog, is there a best-practice method within Greenhopper of denoting (1) whether a new item has been verified as a blocker, and (2) whether a given blocker item has been relatively-ordered vertically by the master (relative to other existing blockers within the backlog)?
Question asked during the August 30th, 2012 webinar titled "Improving Processes with Scrum and Kanban"
The best practice is to have the Product Owner (Master) decide on whether this is a blocker or not. The PO priortises all issues in the Backlog.
One option is to tie bugs to stories, so that you do not close a story unless all the associated bugs are fixed, tested & closed. A Suggestion is to create a Story Bug as a kind of sub task for this purpose.
