> I have to say, I am a lurker here, but this thread has been disappointing. So many folks want to make assumptions about our process - that our planning meetings are pointless, that we know what we're doing, that we're wasting our time with scrum. So judgmental based on nearly zero data.
I've been doing this for a while and I'm pretty comfortable with the assumptions I am actually making (but perhaps not the ones you inferred from my response.)
It sounds to me like you need help. I suspect neither JIRA, your plan, nor the size of the team is particularly the issue. I suspect things will get worse for your team before you start asking the right questions. I could certainly be wrong about any of that.
- In my experiences using and coaching teams using GH, we very rarely even saw/knew about the underlying JIRA system. 90+% of the time we used the card walls("boards", "planning board", etc) and a couple of searches. We didn't even have to know that JIRA existed, except for some very default/basic administrative config that is shared by both.
I have really enjoyed numerous Atlassian tools. I get especially amused when someone tells me about their "Sharepoint wiki." I show them Confluence, and they usually are completely hooked and realize how much Confluence kicks the pants off of Sharepoint (at least in the way that most dev teams use them).-------

We have started to test out GH as well. The downside to GH over Rally and VersionOne is that GH is a plugin on top of a system that is designed as an issue tracker where the others are designed from the ground up to be Agile management tools. The up side is that JIRA is very customizable and integrates with a large number of other tools including several SCM tools.

We use the greenhopper plugin for Jira.
Works fine for planning sprints and see what is done and what not.
