I volunteer :)  Hacking JIRA is my day job.

I don't really see the need though.  Bob is doing a fine job hosting JIRA
on  I'm sure that backups to ASF hardware could be arranged
if that were really an issue.

But if a) Bob would like to offload the job, b) infrastructure peeps
prefer to keep bugtrackers on ASF hardware, then if someone can toss me a
nagoya account I'll set up a pilot JIRA installation.
