There is no reason to move to a siren server like github when we
already have working infrastructure. There's also the issue of not
being able to take one's data and go. While the code can be moved,
tickets cannot.

PR quality is an issue too, as others have noted.

GitLab might be nice however, but we'd need a way to import all trac
tickets, with ticket numbers and URLs intact. But I don't think we'd
gain much from that.
