Michael Brohl commented on OFBIZ-7788:
--------------------------------------

Yes, I see the point: I propose to extend the guideline such as:

"When you find a duplicate of a JIRA issue, please close the newer one with the 
resolution 'Duplicate', and state what the original issue is.  This does not 
apply for placeholder issues or if the newer Jira does contain additional 
aspects or more comprehensive solutions, documentation or patches. If in doubt, 
please discuss on the development mailing list before choosing one issue over 
the other."

> Update to 'OFBiz Contributors Best Practices'
