We use SQ 7.9 LTS and have the following problem:
When we edit code (marked yellow), the existing issues below the edited line are reopened as new. The figure below illustrates this effect very good. The “new” issue is in old code. Apparently only the change of the line number is checked for the decision. Also the display is very confusing: When I want to see new issues, they are shown in a non-yellow code.
In our context the developers question the whole Leak Period method, if old issues are displayed as new every time a change is made.
