[OpenLayers-Dev] Github or Trac?

Hey Phil,

I promise you once you try it out (github pull requests) you don't want to do manual patches anymore, you will call that clumsy. I was skeptical at first as well.

I agree that the github issue tracker misses some of the Trac features (as you point out), however having the issue tracker closer to the versioning system brings in more benefit IMHO.

Best regards,

What is the benefit in doing this? None that I can see as far reporting bugs - its just become a lot more difficult. And for developers, it appears you lose the ability to filter by category (bug, feature, improvment etc), or look at priority.
