This doesn't change the fact that JIRA is closed-source.
Does anyone (besides me) have objections to this on principle (rather
than on a pragmatic basis)?
What kind of message does it send about DragonFly's commitment to
open-source, for example? Isn't it kind of like saying to our fellow
volunteers on projects such as Bugzilla and Trac: "Well thanks for
giving back to the community, guys, but in the end we'd rather help
improve a closed commercial product than help you improve yours" ?
