	git log is totally unreliable.  I’ve shown that over and over and over.  JIRA may not perfect,
but it’s *correctable* and the restraints on what actually can be input in certain fields
is a good thing.

	But frankly, at this point, it doesn’t matter. We haven’t had a *single* minor release
in branch-2 that didn’t break something in user- or ops- facing ways.  Why stop now?
