I am not a decision maker, but I would think that CI is no problem. I
mean, it uses code from Apache SVN and there is no documentation which
is cirtical for the project on it. If it breaks or gets lost or
developers leave the project there is nearly no harm done because one
can set up another CI server. In Log4PHP we had a cruisecontrol server
from one of the developers until we moved to buildbot. I think we
could have stayed there.

On issues i think is more problematic. This is information critical to
a project and I believe it needs to be stored somewhere on Apache
servers. But there is always the chance to speak with infra if we are
able to install Arbit there. Is this a incubation blocker for Zeta? If
not we should proceed with this process and then ask infra, otherwise
we need to clarify now.
