Tracking can be done by replying to messages.
And if nobody cares about the patch, JIRA will not help -- patches in JIRA
rot with exactly the same rate as they do in e-mail.

Not true. Check out 
http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.java.harmony.devel
http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.java.harmony.devel

(by the way, I read/post using Gmane NNTP gateway, and this also gives
a fair amount of older postings).

Agreed. E-mail is not a silver bullet, though it comes close :)
