Hudson comments on the jira with a link to the git commit anyway when the build gets done. IMO, it pretty much accomplishes the same thing (though of course, if a build is delayed or does not get done, that comment would not exist). But I don't see the point of an additional comment (other than jira e-mails).
That said, I am not against it. So I am a +0 for this.

To my surprise ASF is offering similar service , so I'm wondering whether it would make sense to take advantage of this service for entire Sqoop project.
