I don't think we would have a use case for HipChat, but I like Jira (even
though Trac isn't too bad either and moving would be considerable effort).
The Bamboo agent runs on OS X, which could be used with our build servers,
but support for older Java versions is deprecated, which could become a
problem for our older OS buildbots :/

Is Crucible possible as well? Not that we currently do any code reviews,
but it could become a useful development model to make contributions

Yeah, the Amazon VMs don't really buy us anything apart from the Linux
base builder, which is the least of our problems. OS X on Amazon EC2 isn't
going to happen.
