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.

Sorry, I should have explained that Datatracker and xml2rfc sit outside of this project as they are much larger code/issue bases. And yes, as noted in Robert’s email [1], these are being moved to GitHub as complete migrations.
