I would prefer the above. Having CC's correct on issues that are closed is
imho more important than a larger one-time flood of emails. Otherwise it
becomes quite hard to revisit issues.

Good idea.

It looks pretty good, looking forward to trying it out in a test Github
repo. Below are a few things that I noticed in the code.

It looks like you want to discard the Milestones, except for the 1.7.0,
1.8.0 and 2.0.0 ones. Why not keep all of them?

I think the bug/enhancement/task label is missing.

This shouldn't work I think (and I did a short test):
    def t2g_markup(s):
        return s.replace('{{{', "'''").replace('}}}', "'''")
The {{{<txt>}}} part should be replaced by ``<txt>`` for inline markup and
indented for multi-line comments in Github I believe, then it will render
the same way.
