Feels like it's time to make a decision on this.

I see no blocking objections against Github, so perhaps we should give it a
go. The attachment issue for data files can be solved by relocating those
to a server we still administer. Trac is currently annoying me also,
because I need to change the milestone of ~50 tickets and have no good way
of doing it. So nothing's perfect. Github's hosting service, possibly more
user involvement and centralizing all our tools there may be enough to
outweigh the limitations of GHI.

Proposal: move NumPy tickets to Github.
