Agreed.

Use Jira for recording information about the issue raised - for example, 
a single entry may result in several commits over time, may result in 
clearer doco, or other changes that are not reflected in the code tree 
(e.g. wiki updates).

Use SVN for recording information about the specific change being made 
so that developers reviewing the change can see what was intended or 
someone looking back at the code (including you 3 years from now) can 
understand what happened.

Jira and SVN are two of the most critical communication tools for the 
community - if in doubt, over-communicate.
