This is also in reply to some previous emails.

I've just recently joined this mailing list, but I'm subscribed to quite
a few others and I think they're great and that there is absolutely no
need to switch to a proprietary platform, since this workflow appears to
work fine.

Regarding a bug tracker, if there is a need for one, Drew DeVault's
Sourcehut[0] might be a good option. It's a whole platform, but it's
very modular, so if needed, only the bug tracker can be used. It is also
available to be self-hosted or be used hosted on
