+1 for (2)  [assuming jira here means a separate mailing list that gets 
the full jira traffic]

My main reasoning is: not all issues are relevant to all people, so we 
should let folks select which issues they want to stay fully updated on 
(that is why JIRA has the watch functionality). For those who want to 
keep track of every single jira update going on then they can join the 
full traffic list. I think that is a good compromise between both 
worlds. My 2 cents.
