Thanks for the pointers.

I agree with the UI concerns about b.p.o.  But I also agree with the
response mentioned in LWN.  Especially the lack of categorization in
Github issues.

I've used Github issues on other projects.  It's fine when you have a
small-to-medium number of open issues (say, no more than a couple
hundreds).  But I don't think it's usable for a project with several
thousands issues open.  At a micro level, the editing UI is pleasant to
use.  But at a more macro level, it's rather painful to navigate in a
large number of issues.

I wonder if other hosted services, such as Gitlab, offer a more
sophisticated issue tracker.
