This implies that we want to port the Trac issues into Github. This is not a
requirement. The 'organic' way to migrate to new things is just to move on.
Trac is legacy; leave it in read-only mode so that history is preserved, but
there's no need to do anything else.

Except, of course, point people to Github instead of Trac, and make sure all
libraries have Github issues enabled.

There's no need to fight the natural course of things. Github is obviously a
way better infrastructure; Github PRs once you get CI up and running is so
much superior than Trac patches that it's not even a contest. We just need
to acknowledge that on our front page.
