just joined this list, but this will not prevent me from adding my
2¢ :-).

While github has become a great platform for sharing code, I find its
issue tracker quite simplistic; good and simple for small projects with
few bugs (<50 open bugs, maybe), but insufficient for projects with
custom issue workflow, things like milestones and issue owners etc. In
that respect, trac is pretty good, and so (with my bug reporter hat on)
I’d prefer trace, at least as long as it is sustainable to maintain it.
