I've been meaning to suggest this for a long time now. We are
short-staffed as it is. Spending time configuring our own servers,
managing a Trac instance and moderating spam, is time that could be
better spent on development.

Another benefit of GitHub is the integration with third-party tooling
such as code quality monitors, CI, etc. For example, the CMake branch
