Trust me, we really don't want to get into mirroring stuff between github and jira.  We have
tried to do that internally at rim before and it is a nightmare prone to error.

While I whole-heartedly support GitHub and the integration between commits, discussions, and
issues, it would be better to move completely to Jira if GitHub is a non option.

Sorry I missed that bit while lurking on the call. ;)

The main thing we loose is the ability to reference issues via commit
comments and have them link up automagically. As well as the epic
discussion on those commits / issues / pullrequests.

Is this an absolute requirement to use JIRA?  I see us loosing a LOT of
what makes github awesome by not using its issue tracker.
