Sadly it happens. My last org went through a few kinds of issue trackers. Some of which had licences and would cost money to keep around, so they were ditched. Adding a reference can be super useful, but I feel the commit should speak for itself.
Anyways we ended up using gitlab's issue tracking features, which are quite nice as well.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
