Good integration with github (including PRs) is one of the most
important and compelling reasons to use the github issue trackers, IMO.

Well, perhaps it was framed wrongly ? For avoidance of doubt: I'm fully
with Robert here: the question shouldn't be whether all boost projects
should switch to github issue tracking, but rather whether they *may*
move away from the trac tracker to whatever they else they prefer.
