I do like the team behind JetBrains.   And I've seen and heard good things about TeamCity.   Thanks for reminding me about the build-bot situation.  That is one thing I would like to address sooner rather than later as well.

I have seen a lot of time wasted on issue management with Trac --- time that could be better spent on NumPy.    I'd like to make issue management efficient --- even if it means a system separate from GitHub.
