I originally meant for this to be on the order of a 'paste service for
couchdb bugs'. To me it would seem like there needs to be some sort of
noise reduction between anyone accidentally hitting submit and tickets
being created. That said, if a bug does need to become a ticket, the
idea would be to create a full fledged ticket in JIRA and then focus
on that.

It's a pretty dumb service which should be easily movable to any
semi-permanent public server. In terms of history of the bugs stored
in it etc, see above. Perhaps I should emphasize the paste aspects of
life duration for bugs in the system.

If by vetted you mean I have to click a check box that says the code
is released under the Apache License, that can be added.

Like I say, think pastes for the time being. While making it easy for
people to create JIRA issues from a given paste is on the agenda, this
is way below ticket tracking IMO.
