A related datapoint is that I've seen more than one project
on github without a release plan and therefore github not
automatically solving that problem. It's all about active
contributors and maintainers if you ask me.

I suppose what I'm saying is that xmonad has a maintainer
and not a tooling issue.

BTW, is it only me or is google code's issue system better
than github's?
