I think this is probably not a very big deal, as long as there is a way
of seeing the "inbox" of unlabeled bugs, and as long as the tracker
sends mail about new bugs. The rate at which tickets are reported to us
is at the moment not too that big. Triaging them will probably boil down
to a five minutes of brainless work every second week, or so.

One big plus with Github compared to Redmine et al. is that someone else
(TM) hosts it. One thing less to think about.

Apart from the attachments issue, I don't have very big quibbles with
the GH issue tracker.
