Thanks David, it seems we have clear support (if not unanimous) for a
github-based solution, and most certainly for moving away from LP.
The proof will be in the pudding, but I certainly hope this will make
it easier for people such as yourself to have a lower barrier to
making contributions, without the tools and interface getting in your
way.

I'm going to spend a bit of time writing a bug transition script so we
can move our bugs from LP to Github without data loss, and I'll report
back when things are ready to move.

Cheers,
