JIRA does not play nice with the email threading features of GMail,
which is how I monitor the Ant forums, because it adds a status flag
in each email title (Created, Assigned, Updated, Commented, Resolved,
Closed and maybe more!), and apparently does not put threading info in
the email header.

This make is much more difficult to follow a bug using emails only.
That, and the fact that is a bit too verbose for me (which GMail might
be able to reduce by hiding common parts if thread worked...).

My vote is really more of a -0 or -0.5, as I don't want to prevent
more active commiters to make the switch, or if the community prefers
JIRA, but as it stands, I think JIRA's not being email
threading-friendly is a pretty big drawback, thus my no above. --DD

PS: Maybe JIRA can be confiured to enable threading, but the
CruiseControl forum I kinda follow uses it, and I don't think it
better looking at it from the perspective of monitoring the emails
