As most of you know, a few months ago we moved many of our primary
repositories from primary Apache hosting to primary GitHub hosting. A
major reason we did so was to leverage the better user experience of
GitHub, especially for community interaction.

It's now time for us to move from JIRA to GitHub Issues. Here's how:

0. The community reviews and approves this change. As a non-technical
  decision, our bylaws say that no formal vote is required, only a
  lazy majority from committers with 72 hours notice. That said,
  I'd like to ensure broad support for this change, so even if
  you're not a committer, please reply to this email with any

1. Approve pull requests to update our issue and pull request templates
  and add a file to our primary repositories:

2. Approve pull requests to update our webpage and documentation to
  point to GitHub apache/couchdb for issue reporting:

3. Start using GH Issues for all new issues. At the same time, any
  committers who have completed the account integration process
  (see the new file for details) should start
  labeling their issues and pull requests with the new scheme.
  The label scheme is here:

  A reminder to committers - this means PRs don't need a JIRA ticket!
  And because PRs are just a special kind of GH Issue, there's no need
  to create a separate issue unless you want to. (Don't forget the

4. Start moving selected issues over from JIRA. At this point, only
  actively worked issues should be moved over. When developers pick
  up a new task from JIRA, they should create a companion GH Issue
  for the ticket and reference it in JIRA, then close the JIRA issue.

5. In the future, we will work to migrate more issues as desired.
  However, we won't be moving any 1.x-specific issues over to GitHub.

At some point in the future, we will also consider:

* A script to de-assign idle issues (and de-tag them if necessary)
* A script to auto-repost new issues from JIRA into GH Issues. (We
  can't disable new issue creation in JIRA without shutting down
  the entire instance, and we don't want to do that.)

This is perhaps the happiest email I've sent to any CouchDB mailing list
ever. I'm really excited about this change, and I bet you are too!

Thanks to everyone who's helped us get this far, especially Apache
Infrastructure for the Gitbox integration workflow.
