No, GH is only supplementary. JIRA is the "source system" for tracking 
Accumulo as a project. But, this isn't a discussion about switching to 
Github issues, as Christopher clarified earlier. That's a whole other 
can of worms I definitely don't want to open.

If a transition to Gitbox is paving the way to move to issues, that's a 
different issue. I'd have more concerns WRT how we do project mgmt in 
that case.

As a gray-beard, I don't really have much other ability than to just 
disagree with you on this point.

... what flaws? All I've seen so far are UX complaints. Have I failed to 
grasp something? What copy-pasting are you referring to?
