The only problem I see with the way that you do code reviews on Github, is
the fact that you can only review change sets.  You can't simply go through
an existing codebase and point out the problems.  I suggested Stash and
Crucible since they're both linked with JIRA, and I think Apache has free
access to Atlassian's stack for its projects
