The connector plugin has a lot of potential, however, in terms of accessibility for someone using a screen reader such as JAWS (Job Access With Speech) it fails miserably I'm sorry to say. The majority of controls are not labled properly, making it impossible for a screen reader to announce their functions. More keyboard shortcuts for controls which are impossible to tab to would also be much appreciated and increase accessibility dramatically. I'm looking forward to new and improved versions of this plugin. Definitely something that could increase productivity quite a bit provided a little effort is made to make it more keyboard only, and screen reader friendly. Thanks for the good work thus far!

May be it can be usable for "open software fans", but for ones tring to switch from MS Team Foundation Server it's a disaster. Like the product itself, this modul is very immature: it's nether stable or functional to be used (with ease) for SCRUM.

Gotta agree with zammy. Extremely disappointing coming from TFS. Its products like this that make open source an extremely expensive alternative. Might be good for people doing open source (those who enjoy billing their clients for reams of unnecessary, convoluted development and maintaining appearances of expertise), but for those who value their personal time - stay away!!! BTW 1.3.1 against JIRA v4.1.2#531 blows up when debugging in VS 2008. But hey, what do I care??? I billed my client for 2hrs @ US$300/hr. to determine its the "freeware" he insists on using. Ahh the hidden costs of free software. baaa-baaaaaaa. . . effing sheep. don't even get me started on JIRA. . what a dog that is!!!

Thanks for the cool tool. Could you please help on the custom fields while I am resolving an issue, the JSON got exception because I added some fields in the transition screen, and for now I have to resolve the issue on browser.
