Vadim, I may be biased in favour of JIRA because I use it quite extensively (as you can see

yourself) but from my own experience JIRA offers us much more than plain text.

Sorry but I don't really understand if you are joking here but taking your course of argumentation

we could say that version control system is redundant because we can do well with simple bash
that will make snapshots for us regularly. No need to install svn client, learn its commands,

JIRA offers nice, graphical overview over progress of particular release, can produce release
automatically, and so on.

Have you tried Mylyn (Mylar in the past)? I think that Mylyn is killer plug-in for Eclipse
makes task creation very easy and _natural_.

Let it be a joke ;)
