The problem is that if I stumble across code like this:

if (someCondition)

I can objectively see that something is wrong, and, depending on the code in
question, can often figure out what the right behavior is. If I need to go
open a JIRA issue (which in turn means that I'd need to be online) just in
order to change it, I'm much less likely to make the fix at all. I don't
like the idea of erecting process barriers to keeping the codebase in good

Also, I don't fully buy into the theory that people should be able to see
all in JIRA. I mean, they do have access to the svn repository, including
the commit log and 'svn annotate' etc.
