Andreas and I have been evaluating the GitHub issue tracker (as I know
others have as well).  While using it, we're still opening Trac

For example, here's an issue related to improving dateline handling
for vector features:

In Trac http://trac.osgeo.org/openlayers/ticket/3526

And GitHub https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/pull/11 (with
history https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/pull/11/commits and a
summary diff https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/pull/11/commits).

The benefits of the GitHub tracker are plain to me (but I've been sold
for a couple years).  There's not any inline commenting going on here,
but it's a feature we use frequently elsewhere.  I'll let the Trac
stalwarts extol its virtues.
