I think that's the key in this discussion: if a project considers JIRA
their central organizing tool, it's fine to require patches to go
there.

If another project prefers patches on the dev list, that also works,
though JIRA helps make the "intentional contribution" bit more
explicit.

In both cases, authors of "substantial contributions" (whatever that
means) need to  have an iCLA on file.
