It's probably worth mentionning that we could also import trac
tickets/history/file attachments/wiki into redmine, which integrates
decently with git repositories and github.

I have used different setups in the past, from github being the central
repo with a push hook on github that told our redmine server to fetch the
last changes, to a redmine-centric workflow where with the help of some
plugins users can add their ssh keys to their redmine account and it uses
project rights with gitolite, automatic git repository creation on project
creation, etc (basically like github, except it's redmine).

Not saying this is what boost want, just saying it's an alternative to
managing issues on github. Also Trac supports git since a while now, but I
think Trac is slowly becoming obsolete.
