(sorry for the top-post...Outlook is about 20+ years behind the times wrt to inline replies...

Thanks, Nick!

It looks like Trafficserver uses GitHub PRs (and Projects!):

They use Jira for issues and Confluence for their wiki.

They do have a single issue (for hacktoberfest) "surfaced" from their Jira to their GitHub

It would be most familiar (afaict) to this community if we could do All The Things via GitHub
(+ syncing it all...somehow...with the ASF re:legal requirements).

That said, I think the following mix would work for us--if GitHub All The Things isn't an

 - code: git + GH mirror

    - pull requests: GitHub

 - issues: Jira

 - wiki: Confluence

 - website: SVN (svnpubsub)

Does that seem feasible to everyone?

I'd recommend a look at Trafficserver.  That's run very smoothly
for  years, and is one of just a couple of projects trialling
full two-way mirroring.
