Does “all the issues” include the Datatracker issues? The current 
issue tracking system is hooked to subversion, where the datatracker 
code is managed, and I suspect we would lose that if the issues were 
migrated to GitHub. Unless there is also a plan to move the code to 
GitHub as well, of course.
