The "release" and "issues" stuff on github is ridiculous, I have no
opposition to mirror on github and get pull requests from there, but
the "home" (ie where official tarballs are released) should be elsewhere
also trac, although perhaps not so fancy looking is much better than
github issue tracker imo.

The only "nice" thing about github's issues is that you can answer via
email, too bad it mangles addresses so that it is super easy to just
send any reply in a black hole (done that on several occasions and was
wondering why the reporter did not reply).
