I wonder if the committee has really decided on a PROBLEM or BUG
tracker, not an "issue" tracker. For some silly reason, "issue" has
become a euphemism for "problem" nowadays. It is worth keeping in mind
the difference. Questions about the future direction of Python, such as
(for example) whether there should be optional static typing, are
"issues". Python crashing for some reason would be a "problem".
