I agree with Jason. There are instances (and Jason's mentioned a few)  
where generating a Jira ends up producing noise to the community and  
extra work for the developer, without delivering any additional  
benefit to the community.

Perhaps you can be a little more explicit about the problem and we  
can work our way to a solution?

I doubt that the types of changes referenced by Jason are the types  
of changes that you're seeing a problem with... Perhaps you can  
discuss the problem a bit more specifically? Are you seeing instances  
where larger functional enhancements/commits aren't referencing Jira/ 

I'm guessing that you are seeing commits for significant functional  
enhancements for which a Jira was not created (and thus not  
referenced in the commit message). If this is your issue, then I  
think we can find a reasonable solution which the community will  
agree with...
