The python foundation suggests a non-python non-open-source bugtracking
tool for python.

It's like saying: "The python community is not able to produce the
tools needed to drive development of python forward."

Anyway. The whole selection process is intransparent.

The commitee should have stated "goals" and "requirements" with a
public verification of the tools against them.
