Every GitHub repo includes an issue tracker by default (this appears
to be true of all current Boost repos as well). Users who don't know
better will submit their issues there. Are you going to switch off the
trackers for all GitHub repos (this seems to be possible) in order to
stop them? If not, how do you plan to prevent the change and

In the latter case, my suggestion to request or encourage that new
issues be submitted to GitHub might actually help to reduce
fragmentation. But I wouldn't necessarily object against closing the
GitHub trackers either.
