I am also totally fine with Trac, and it contains history that must not be lost.

In theory I agree, but we need to be sure that GitHub does provide at least what we have from Trac ( I don't know how to use it for
one), or decide what from Trac we can live without.

We also need to migrate the history from Trac, IMO. It may be history but it is still invaluable.

Perhaps we need something fancier like this ZenHub? (though at a glance it seems to have some very pretty features that don't look
very useful to us as Boost?)

But someone knowledgeable needs to sort it all out - including educating users.
