I feel a need to do some deFUDging here...

Why? I don't see any relation. Moreover, we can stop using Jira completely and 
still merrily do all our releases, with independent release cycles for all 
components. Jira does not help nor impede our ability to do so.

We agreed long ago to do more time based releases and less feature based 
releases. There is no need for Jira to plan time based releases.

Moreover, there is also no need for Jira to plan feature based releases as well. 
You can as easily use status.xml (see todo section) to track features needed for 
a particular release.

Don't be. Think of a bright side - status.xml is easier and faster to edit than 
Jira! :)
