Will we be moving to the github issue tracker
No. I think a lot of us still prefer Roundup and a significant amount of work is being done to integrate our Roundup instance with GH.
(Or at least have some means of scanning issue emails to quickly spot which ones fall into which classification).
I love Roundup's nosy feature, so I subscribe to the new-bugs-announce list, and yes, you see the first message of any new bug, but I only nosy myself to the issues I know I care about right then (it's always easy to nosy in on a message later).
That's a long way beyond simply "switching to github which is a workflow I'm more familiar with" and while I hope github will help me to contribute more, I do think that ultimately the issue is simply that Python is a large and complex system, and people like me have limited time - and too much of it gets wasted playing "spot something I can work on", but that's inherent in the nature of a system this size.
I think that's true. I plan to start with issues I've already filed or nosied on.
