The canonical URLs should be as short as possible. I also think nobody
will remember that it's "issues.python.org"; people will prefer
"bugs.python.org" even though it's not technically correct (I personally
dislike "issues.python.org" *because* that is technically correct;
I despise correctness for merely political reasons (i.e. PC)).
