Creating dependencies in JIRA

Hi there,

Today in the UX Planning meeting it was mentioned that we may want to  
start creating dependencies between tasks to ensure they are completed  
in the proper order. If you need to do this, go to the "Link this  
issue to another issue" link in the left nav for a particular issue.  
You can then say it depends on, is depended on, relates to, is  
superseded by, etc. another issue. For instance, I added a link saying  
this task: is  
dependent on another task that must be completed first.

So going forward, we should make sure any "depends on" tasks are  
completed (or talk to the person assigned to the "depends on" task)  
before we start work on a task.
