Wow Bao!  I am just checking out your org-jira2 project right now...

Your thing was what my thing (contrib/lisp/org-jira.el) was going to
become when I got the time... Then I got put on a project that didn't use
Jira, and abandoned it (as mentioned earlier).

So yea, Bastien, Bao, and anyone else for that matter, go ahead and do
what you like with that trivial piece of code. Rename it, delete it, fold
it into the new library.

Ironically enough, years later, I am back on a project that does use
Jira.. :)
