A global reference in JBS would indeed be very good to track back the work
in a PR to a real issue. It can also be very useful as there are many
existing issues in JBS that can be referred to in future work.

The only issue I see is that in order to create an issue in JBS, you need
to have "author" status, so not everyone can do this? Given the idea that
developers who want to create a PR also need to sign an OCA, it might make
sense to somehow combine the administration?
