IMHO this involves both a wider and narrower issue

1. for this narrow issue, approval has already been given. insisting
that mentors in particular prepare the required JIRA isn't really
adding anything but friction to the process.

2. the wider issue is whether all infrastructure work should require
IPMC approval and (if so) what form this approval should take

IMO it would be more effect to remove this particular rule and insist
that infrastructure work was approved by the IPMC
