Ralf,  regarding some of the issues:

I think for numpy/scipy trackers, we could simply run separate instances 
of YouTrack for each. Also we can certainly create some standard 
queries. It's a small pain not to have useful defaults, but it's only a 
one-time pain. :)

Also, what kind of integration are you looking for with github? There 
does appear to be the ability to issue commands to youtrack through git 
commits, which does not depend on TeamCity, as best I can tell:

http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/YTD3/GitHub+Integration
http://blogs.jetbrains.com/youtrack/tag/github-integration/

I'm not sure this is what you were thinking about though.

For the other issues, Maggie or I can try and see what we can find out 
about implementing them, or working around them, this week.

Of course, we'd like to evaluate any other viable issue trackers as 
well. Do you have any suggestions for other systems besides YouTrack?

Bryan
