For a short turn around time and quick feedback, I think using IRC as a 
temporary mode of communication is a great idea.

More generally, we could identify a particular area to work on before hand. 
That way we can sort of direct attention to some really needy-aspect that 
might otherwise get left behind simply because no individual dev has a strong 
enough itch to work on it.

Despite that, each BUG day should have some time devoted to cleaning up JIRA. 
In the long run its critical that JIRA serves to guide us, and not confuse 
us. Periodic cleaning should help.
