Samsaran Mystic Past Life alternate racial trait not showing classes/spells available


Mystic Past life doesn't show any classes or spells as selectable for the purpose of this trait. The trait itself can be selected, but there's nothing to 'choose'.
Also, there are some minor errors in the description/ output - ?s or #s appear where there should be 's (apostrophes).

so what's my workaround? deselect the trait, and then select it again?

Yes, remove the trait, and then reapply it. Should work after that. (That's what I did to your supplied character, and it worked). Oh, and I don't know what got messed up, but you have 4 trait selections total available, instead of the allowed 2.

The 4 traits is something manually added in; somewhat of a house rule: 2 standard, +1 if a Drawback (from Ultimate Campaign) is taken, +1 Campaign Trait freebie (since this adventure path has certain role-play elements directly tied to its campaign traits). I manually adjusted it on the Traits tab and added the campaign trait as text to the background, as well as the drawback (which afaik has not been implemented yet)

Noticed something else about this character- for some reason it's showing a bonus to the skill Survival for the Darklands. I have no idea where this is coming from, but I think it may be a copy/paste error from Svirfneblin (who do get this bonus). Should I make a separate Jira for this?

New issue, new tracker. Understand that these issues are listed in the release notes of what was found/fixed for the version and then compiled for the full production release. Piling 2+ issues per tracker doesn't make sense, and it defeats the purpose of tracking what has actually been addressed. See, each time one of us makes a commit fix, the issue is logged against the commit and becomes part of the history record. I don't think the generic user accounts have access to that tab, but for the developers we can look at any issue and see all the commits that were logged as addressing that issue.

When we report progress, saying I fixed 1 issue, when in reality I fixed 5 issues but they were logged as 1 seems to diminish the work. It also doesn't accurately reflect the work done in the whole project.

At this point, you'll see this issue is listed as Fixed for 6.03.1, it's marked as Resolved. The only options available to you (and me if we want to be honest) is "Confirmed Issue Fixed" or "Needs Attention". Those aren't for me, those are for you. That gives you the power to determine whether the original issue you've raised has been properly fixed or not. The subject line says the issue is for the Samsaran Mystic Past Life. So after giving all that information to you, does it make sense for me to log a copy/paste error against this tracker, or a new one?

Our rule of thumb, One issue per tracker. Thanks.
