[X] No, please find another solution

In my opinion, here are some reasons against moving issues to github:

- there are ongoing discussions about moving the whole development process
  to another managed service.  Let's not deal with two migrations in a row.

- github will have the same "tool fragmentation" issues than the current
  bug tracker: it will not be linked to mailing list discussions or

- github is ethically and practically a problem.

Reasons in favour of moving issues to github:

- we don't want to keep maintaining yet another service ourselves

- it's a pragmatic choice

I am not very active in the project at the moment, but I did spend a fair
amount of time triaging bugs in the current bug tracker, and I am well
aware of its limitations.  So I do hope we find a solution.
