Re: Poisson the well.

Well, what's the alternative? Us IT guys can spin up a replacement in half an hour from open source stuff online. A siloed low-skill programmer offshore somewhere that only knows (barely) how to commit and push? A manager type that set up the organization container on GitHub and enabled bug reporting, and doesn't want to see two separate services (gasp!) used for code hosting and bug tracking?

Never underestimate the power of inertia or the allure of centralized one-stop services...
