Perhaps a different wording would be preferred to removal. Suppose a
reviewer accepts a patch but asks for a test before committing it. If it's
hidden in the issue discussion, only those involved in the issue are aware
of the situation. If it's in the issue state, then other potential
contributors may notice it and provide tests. IMHO tests are simpler and
less "scary" for newbies making their first steps in CPython.
