This is conceptually wrong, as the PR may be including a change to the fixVersion, and if that is the case, any associated bug should be resolved with fixVersion set to the value the PR changed it to.

I don't think this will fail much in practice, but there could be corner cases where it might be possible. The failure condition here is catching `UncheckedRestException` and checking the return code. This isn't ideal, and that particular exception is a bit of an implementation detail. Maybe we should consider providing a better API for getting file contents that may be missing?

This has been missing for a long time IMO and there is a lot of possible cleanup possible after introducing this module. Several modules have similar classes doing almost the same thing. I also think that some of the "utils" logic in the forge module could find a better home here.

This pull request has now been integrated.
