Okay so my co-workers explains why they give me the title "GitHub Maid":

Basically most of the time the engineering didn't have the time to scroll through issues, and that includes me, so a lot of this stuff does not get triaged properly when reported. When I stumbled on the tracker, I knew I had to do something, so I sorted and sorted and managed the tickets by my own.

So being a "GitHub Maid" is not something to be embarrassed about after all, in fact, I think the dev team owed me a lot because the issue tracker is more organized, and the issues are getting triaged and assigned properly now compared before.

So if they call you like something similar, be proud of it because some developers wouldn't even bother to tidy up issue tracking.

    I wouldnt hate being called a "JIRA Guru" so much if they didn't stick with a mispronunciation that happened ONCE and I'm now called jira guru but pronounced "jew-roo".

    @arcsector I thank Satan and The Old Ones everyday, for the fact that my company *did not* make me the Jira admin. I am admin on everything else already....

    Based on the time I spent making small corrections to Wikipedia, I would coin the term "tracker gnome" for this job.
