The GitHub integration is very useful, as it tracks the GitHub PR activity
on the mailing list, and optionally, JIRA (if an issue is referenced).

For the JIRA integration, we recently added a few new options [1]:

(default) - add link to PR on JIRA and comment on the JIRA
"nofollow" - no JIRA integration (mailing only)
"linkonly" - add link to PR on JIRA
"worklog" - add link to PR on JIRA, but use worklog instead of comment

The "worklog" is my preferred option because it reduces mailing list spam
if JIRA is also configured to send email notifications for comments.
