I do not think using a commercial system is a good idea. Currently, Jira
is free for open-source, but there is no guarantee. That could change at
anytime and result in possibly an expensive license cost or port to another
system. We use Jira/Confluence and the random loss of support for various
plugins caused by forced security-based upgrades has resulted in a lot of
unexpected work to maintain the system.
