Yea.   For the most part, if I'm digging through something and find a 
bug, I log a JIRA for two types of things:

1) Something I don't have time to fix right now.   That's important to 
get logged so it doesn't get lost. 

2) Something a user is likely to hit through normal use of the product.   
Those need to get logged so they can be searched/found.   One popular 
use of Jira is to "watch" a bug to see when things are fixed, any 
discussion, etc.... If someone does say on the list "why is this not 
working", you can point them at the JIRA item.  

For the trivial spelling things, javadoc, basic code cleanup/reorg 
things, etc.... don't really need JIRA's.    It's mostly the things 
users may encounter and track.
