JIRA has been used for this purpose before.  However, if we're going to the
trouble of codifying this process, is there any reason not to `svn mkdir` the
`donations` directory and use it henceforth?

There are also outdated references to "ASF SVN" in that document which should
be changed to "ASF version control" or similar.
