They have added milestone, which is something that is a must for
release management IMO. Otherwise, it is quite limited, but OTOH,
that's one less thing to worry about, and it is not like trac is a
great issue tracker either. github actually has a few features that
are sorely lacking in our current trac, like a decent REST API and
mass-editing of existing issues.
