github jira sync

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I would like Jira and Github to talk to each other so commit messages with ticket names show up in the ticket. Issue sync would be nice as well. I know jira has a DVCS connector but the documentation is piss poor. From what I can tell that and the Github hooks require our private jira instance to be available from the public internet or at least github's servers. I'd only want to do this to as a last resort. Does anyone have any suggestions on setting Jira to periodically pull the information from github? (HowTos)
