Subject Re: Vote to stop using JIRA

Naveen,

All the benefits you mentioned can be done on Github. All the draw backs you mentioned applies
to JIRA as well.

Name one thing that you can do on JIRA but not on Github.

Apache is about open source software, not about using ugly feature deprived tracking system.

Thanks,
Eric
