We have a Defect, which needs to be fixed across 5-6 releases.
How do we manage and track this defect across different releases. The Defect may be fixed in different releases at different point of time.
Is it recommended to create(clone) a different Defect for each release ? But then it creates too many defects for the same bug.
Or is it recommended to have One defect and have multiple milestones ? But then how do we know if the defect has been fixed for one release and is remaining for other releases ?
Any other suggestions ?
Also the above scenario applies for a User story, if it has to be released across different releases.
